These two ergonomic crochet hook are recently hand turned in a bright combination of two domestic Ukrainian woods in a premium design. The brown wooden parts of the crochet hook are made of Robinia wood and the ergonomic handle between them is turned of Walnut wood. It was sanded for a mirror finish and sealed with safe clear gloss varnish.
These hooks are made in a combined style: aluminium hooks by ADDI ( 3,5 mm) and Boye ( 3,25 mm) of high quality and wooden ergonomic handles.
They are 6,7" (17 cm) and 6,5" ( 16,5 cm) long and 0,83-0,87" ( 21-22 mm) in diameter. Made to order.
Robinia (Robínia pseudoacácia) - people used to call it White Acacia or Black Locust: "Its color can range from a pale greenish-yellow to a darker brown. Tends to darken to a russet brown with age. Grain is usually straight, with a medium texture. Black Locust is a very hard and strong wood, competing with Hickory (Carya genus) as the strongest and stiffest domestic timber: but with more stability and rot resistance. Although it shares a similar common name with Honey Locust, the two aren’t in the same genus, (Robinia and Gleditsia, respectively). Black Locust tends to be slightly heavier, harder, and with more of a green or yellow tinge, while Honey Locust tends to have a warmer orange or red tint." (from wood-database.com)
Walnut ( Júglans régia): "Its heartwood can range from a lighter pale brown to a dark chocolate brown with darker brown streaks. Color can sometimes have a gray, purple, or reddish cast. Sapwood is nearly white. European Walnut can occasionally also be found with figured grain patterns such as: curly, crotch, and burl. Grain is usually straight, but can be irregular. Has a medium texture and moderate natural luster. Known in Europe simply as “Walnut,” or “Common Walnut,” English Walnut (Juglans regia) is the source of what are the most common form of edible walnuts for human consumption. Branches of English Walnut are sometimes grafted onto the trunk of Claro Walnut trees in Californian walnut orchards to take advantage of the latter tree’s roots, which are better suited to the locale and produce more fruit"(from wood-database.com) .
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.
