BENEFITS OF USING NATURAL WOOD CROCHET HOOK
Our Wood crochet hooks are made with unusual woods from all over the world which are very carefully selected and hand polished into functional works of art.
Natural Wood is warm, smooth and soft. It won't drain heat from sensitive fingers the way aluminium and plastic needles do. We have many comments from arthritis patients and their doctors that they wouldn't be knitting if it weren't for wooden needles.
Wood is our greatest renewable natural resource. It is environmentally friendly; it's recyclable, biodegradable and durable; when it is no longer needed it can be returned to the earth. All wood used comes from strictly regulated forests or small woodland owners in the United States ensuring proper environmental logging practices and selective cutting for maximum reforestation.
Wooden hooks are lovely to work with and are beautiful to look at. They also make a great gift for crocheters and are bound to be long treasured.
There are many benefits of wooden crochet hooks, these include:
Light weight – wooden hooks are light weight and this makes them ideal for crocheters with weak hands or who find working with heavy hooks cumbersome.
Silky smooth – most wooden crochet hooks are silky smooth which ensures that the yarn slips up and down easily and without catching. Many crocheters find that this helps them to crochet faster as the stitches and loops slide easily over the hook.
Artisan made – many wooden crochet hooks are hand turned. This means that a wood worker has hand created the hook using ancient and traditional techniques. These hooks combine practicality with beauty and the inner depths of the wood are displayed. Artisan created hooks often feature unusual adornments such as beads, glass or other treasures.
Custom created hooks – wood workers will often be delighted to create custom made hooks. This might include hooks with thicker handles which are useful for people with arthritis or other ailments. This is the ideal way to own the perfect hook and, if looked after well, is one that will last for many years to come.
