A hike in the woods can be a profound experience. Lifting one’s spirits, grounding the soul and shedding the worries of the world. I always come home with an empty water bottle and a full backpack of rocks and branches, that I found unique. I have begun to turn the small branches of wood into crochet hooks! My love of working and restoring wood has evolved into another art form.
Whittled, sanded and polished with love. Rubbed deeply with essential oils, not only brings out the beautiful grains of the wood, but also, smell beautiful. Unique shapes, fitting comfortably in your hand, with a very nice slip. Over time, wood self polishes making these hooks glide swiftly and smoothly through whatever fiber you chose to work with. I have also found, as I create with my own personal wooden hooks, the oils from my hands, and moisturizes I use, also brings out another level of beauty.
Hook size is 5mm or H.
Your hook will arrive with a beautifully crafted Felted Case.
I do not make the felted pieces myself, I source pieces of felt from my dear friend friend Annette, at Make Life Cozy in Vt. But I DO make the cases. Your case will provide protection for your beautifully crafted hook, as well as help it maintain it’s wonderful smell.
If you do not want your hook to come fragranced with Essential Oils, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! I understand that some of us have allergies or do not like fragrances added to products. Your hook will be rubbed with Mineral Oil instead.
Also be aware that over time your hook, if scented, will not keep it’s fragrance. It will dissipate over time. But you may massage oil into your hook anytime you want to. No the scent will not transfer to your work. It stays within the wood of the hook.
I will be offering a variety of woods found here in The Berkshires. Apple, Birch, Oak, Pine, Maple. Each hook is Unique. As I create, more styles and sizes will become available. Sizes are based on mm, U S standard sizing. These hooks are considered inline.
