This crochet hook is handmade of purpleheart. Purpleheart is an exotic wood that is extremely dense and durable. Its purple hue increases with age [The last picture shows the contrast]. These crochet hooks turned to approximately 5/8'' in circumference by 6'' in length. Our hand turned hooks are ornately designed, finely sanded and polished smooth resulting in a uniquely beautiful tool. Wooden crochet hooks are often lighter than aluminum and have a slightly warmer "feel" to them. This heirloom quality hook would be a perfect gift for anyone who enjoys crocheting. Each crochet hook is labeled with its size. Each crochet hook is labeled on the back with its size.
This is a magnificent crochet hook. Only problem is that I don't like using it! It's totally smooth but it doesn't glide well enough. The yarn moves slowly so it feels like it's dragging. I ordered other wood ones too since I love how they look. It's a common problem. I need to stick to metal hooks and find a good handle.

Received this item very quickly. Feels very good in my palm and is comfortable crocheting with it. The only suggestion I have is that the end that grabs the yarn be a bit more pointed.

This hook is so comfortable and well made. The coloring is beautiful and the details in the wood stand out nicely. I would love it if all my crochet hooks were like this one!
