  1. Hamanaka Crochet Hook Set

    Hamanaka Crochet Hook Set

    $49.99

    This item will not ship until 8/11/17.  We apologize for the inconvenience.


    What makes Hamanaka Hooks our absolute favorites?

    Head Shaping: The head is pointy to poke through the tinest of openings, and the hook tip is 'the best of both worlds'. Not quite inline, but almost so, it extends to just the right point of the tapered throat so it really grabs your working yarn without dragging when you pull your yarn through.

    Tapered Throat: The part of the hook that extends from the handle to the head is tapered. This is great for puff stitches, bullions and any stitch that requires you to pull through a lot of yarn overs.

    Japanese Quality: We import these directly from Japan. The materials and level of craftsmanship represent Japanese manufacturing quality at its best. It feels like a precision instrument.

    Ergonomic Grip: Each grip is color-coded to indicate hook size and is contoured for a really comfortable hold.

    10 Hook Sizes in One Compact Kit: Hooks have a different-sized head on each end and a set of of 5 hooks contains 10 hook sizes in all. Excellent for travellers and those who appreciate the beauty of simplicty and agree that "less as more".

  3. Yarn Sampler Pack for Crochet Lace

    Yarn Sampler Pack for Crochet Lace

    As low as: $27.00

    This pack of 5 unique yarns perfect for stitching crochet openwork.

    Traditional crochet lace is beautiful and was most often done with white crochet thread. That doesn't mean we have to continue just using white crochet thread today!

    One of the fun ways to translate these historical techniques into contemporary looks is to experiment with alternate fibers and yarns that preserve the intricate stitch definition of crochet lace while introducing alternative textures and colors.

    In Jennifer Hansen's Classic Crochet Openwork class on Craftsy, Jennifer introduces the basics of 7 different kinds of crochet lace, and features a non-traditional yarn in each lesson.

    Crochet Openwork

    Whether you are taking the class and would like to follow along with the same yarns, or you'd just like to do your own lace experiments,  this Sample Pack is a great way to try a variety of different yarns at a discounted price.

Allison Geary now creates these needles for us. She was trained by Ed Jenkins and continues his tradition of creating one-of-a-kind fiber arts tools.
