I've been searching for the perfect wood crochet hooks for some time and I finally found them in these! I've got specific needs when it comes to hooks; I need an in-line head, thumb-rest, long enough handle to not irritate the heel of my hand and for wood hooks particularly the smoother the better. I've been pretty exclusively a Susan Bates crochet hook user but I'd been wanting a set of good wooden hooks especially for use in the winter. I've tried probably ten different brands through Amazon and elsewhere and was getting quite frustrated at not being able to find what I was looking for; the closest I'd come was Knitter's Pride hooks which were pretty good but are still a bit too close to a tapered head for me to be completely comfortable using them. Then I found these hooks and I was overjoyed at how perfect they are! They are quite expensive but for me, the price was more than worth it since I crochet a frankly insane amount and having a set of luxury hooks that have all the attributes I'm looking for is worth it! The only complaint I have about the hooks is that the sizes are stamped on and the stamp wears off very, very easily. It's not a deal breaker as I keep my hooks in a case organized by size and also have one of those little tools that you can use to size hooks with just in case, but it would be nicer if the size was maybe carved into the end of the handle or something like that. Also, Paradise Fibers' customer service is fantastic! When I ordered my first few of these to see if I'd like them I was erroneously sent a 5.0mm instead of a 5.5mm and after a quick phone call they sent a replacement out immediately, didn't need me to send the wrong hook back and didn't charge shipping on the replacement or anything! I'm definitely going to be saving up to finish a complete set of these hooks in both wood types eventually, I love them that much!
My mom has been wanting a wooden crochet hook for years! I finally found this one and loved the look! It makes for a great gift for crocheters!
I purchased one of the rosewood crochet hooks, and love the way they feel while working. Very comfortable and warm in my hand, and beautifully made as well!
I recently purchased wood crochet hooks and knitting needles in sizes I didn't have, but need for current projects. They are wonderful to use, and the warmth and feel of the wood, for me, makes the process even more enjoyable.
I wasn't too keen on the price, but I lost my metal 9mm hook, and decided to try it out after trying to bring it back. It handles like a plastic tool in weight, smooth to the touch with it's shaped end, its a tactile delight. Much like plastic tools, I don't death grip it so I don't get fatigued as quickly. I will have to refrain from walking and crocheting, because I don't want to lose this treasure. (Also feels loke a wand, and rosewood is good for intuition. Squee!)
