Item details

Hello and welcome to our shop;)

We are glad to present you one of the products of our family woodworking shop.

This ergonomic crochet hook is recently hand turned of two domestic Ukrainian woods in a premium design: Hornbeam ( Cárpinus bétulus) and Apple-tree wood (Malus domestica).

The white part of the hook is made of Hornbeam wood and a smooth ergonomic handle is turned of Apple wood. It was sanded for a mirror finish and sealed with safe clear gloss varnish.

The crochet hook on the photo is 6,5" long (16,5 cm) and 0,87" ( 22 mm) in diameter, size 7 = 4,5 mm. Made in a single copy.

"Heartwood of Apple can vary from a light reddish or grayish brown to a deeper red/brown. The grain of Apple is sometimes seen with streaks of darker and lighter bands of color, similar to Olive. Sapwood is a pale cream color. Grain is straight (though on some sections of the tree it can also be wild). With a very fine, uniform texture, closely resembling Cherry. Apple can be somewhat difficult to work due to its high density. Likely to be rather expensive, and is usually meant for only small projects and specialized applications."

"Hornbeam’s sapwood is very thick, color is nearly white. Grain is straight to slightly interlocked, with a fine, even texture. Hornbeam has excellent resistance to wear and abrasion. Overall, Hornbeam is considered difficult to work on account of its density and toughness. However, this same density, coupled with its fine and even grain, make an excellent turning wood." (from It is very smooth and looks like Ivory.
It's named so, because one of its original uses was as an ox yoke, or the wood was reputed to be as hard and tough as a horn.

We make ergonomic crochet hooks. An ‘ergonomic’ crochet hook is a hook that is designed to alleviate pain that occurs while crocheting. Most ergonomic hooks have an enlarged handle that can be more comfortable to hold, especially for a long time. We haven’t found much information on exactly why a larger handle alleviates wrist pain while crocheting, but there is much evidence that these types of hooks work. If you’re experiencing tendinitis, arthritis or any other condition that makes crocheting painful… there’s a chance that using an ergonomic hook will provide relief.

Please, use these links to order custom crochet hooks :

Our family workshop produces custom ergonomic crochet hooks from natural wood of various kinds - domestic Ukrainian and exotic - such as Apple-tree wood, Sweet cherry wood, Beech wood, Merbau, Apricot, Bog Oak, Oak, Ash wood, Smoke Tree, Robinia, Hornbeam, Silverberry (Wild Olive), Honey Locust, Cherry, Plum and other varieties. All materials are solid, natural and ecologically safe, woods have fine grain and high density, they are perfectly polished, items are sanded for a mirror finish and sealed with safe gloss or matt varnish or with a special and natural OSMO oil.

Our main ally and inspirer is nature itself, because it creates such a variety of colors and textures, every single piece - with its own pattern, which reveals itself to us only in the process of turning it. That is why we emphasize that each crochet hook is made in a single copy and we can repeat its shape, but the color and pattern of wood can differ - it is created by nature itself, we are only opening it. Hope for your understanding.

We turn crochet hooks of various shapes, and, unfortunately, there is no way they can somehow be systematized into the order table in this listing. The basic shapes are shown in the photo: straight and smooth hooks, in the form of an hourglass, with one or more balls, "gothic" etc. When ordering, please write in the note what kind of shape you like most, and also specify the type of wood and the size of the hook.

Other custom forms and designs are available too. Just write us, describing the comfortable form, desired wood and the size - and we'll start working at your new crochet hook. You can also send us the picture or the link, it will help us to understand and the idea quicker.

For crochet hooks of the smallest size - 4 and 4.5 mm, we recommend choosing hornbeam wood- it is very hard, smooth, perfectly polished and slightly porous, looks like ivory - both in tone and in smoothness and gloss. We make wooden hooks ranging in size from G to Q (starting from 4 mm and bigger). Smaller sizes are also possible, in a combined style. We use metal (aluminum) tips to get smaller sizes, which are difficult or impossible to do in wood. We can insert both aluminum and steel hooks into a handle to your choice.

More porous woods - Bog oak, Honey locust, Pear, Apple-tree - are better to use for turning crochet hooks in the size from 7 mm and more.

Robinia wood (Black locust, Acacia) has a variety of shades - from light beige and greenish to reddish-brown and the color of dark chocolate, so please indicate in the order exactly which tone you choose.

If you don't find your country in the list of selected countries - don't worry, we ship worldwide. Please, get in touch with us before making an order and we'll inform you concerning the correct shipping price. Thank you for understanding!)

Feel free to ask any questions. And thank you for your interest!))
