A blocking spring is a very useful millinery tool. It is an old idea which we have updated. Our durable plastic springs enable you to block a crown more easily with fewer pins and in less time than using pins alone. A blocking spring is particularly helpful when blocking sinamay. Holding the squares of sinamay in the correct position on the block while you pull and pin can be difficult but the spring will hold the sinamay securely in place while you distribute the extra material at the corners of the square. This method gives a neater result with much less effort than when using pins alone and also means you use far fewer pins. Springs come in all sizes to accommodate your different crown blocks and come with instructions for use. Please say which size you require, bearing in mind that the spring needs to match the head size of the block you’ll use it with.
