Beautiful card/inkle weaving beaters, hand crafted from beautiful Hawaiian Koa with a firm sharp edge perfect for working on weaving bands. The beaters are heavy enough to pack down your weft, but light enough to allow for hours of weaving. The finish is a light linseed oil to allow the beauty of the wood to shine through, and all the beaters have been hand sanded 4 different times with a sandpaper up to 1500 grit for a silky, smooth touch and a wonderful feel in the hand.
"Although Koa is naturally quite abundant on the islands of Hawaii, most Koa forests have been cleared for grazing pastures; and since young Koa seedlings are edible for grazing animals, most new trees are prevented from growing to lumber-harvestable size. As a result, mature Koa trees are either scarce, or in hard-to-access mountainous locations, and the price of Koa is likely to only increase further in the future. Koa is widely considered to be the most beautiful and useful of Hawaii’s native hardwoods, and along with Monkey Pod and Mango, it is the most common Hawaiian species to be imported into the lower 48 United States." source: http://www.wood-database.com/koa/
