Handcarved wooden hook set

Looking for the perfect gift for the crocheter? Or perhaps you want to spoil yourself with a gorgeous new hook set? Ooh do I have a treat for you! I’ve decided to open up pre orders for these handcarved wooden hook sets, they are extremely limited edition so if you want a set, don’t hesitate!

Each of these wooden hooks are tested by me to ensure their smoothness, so you can use them for your special crochet projects. Or if you’re like me, you’ll want to use them as props in every single one of your WIP photos!

Our story

These wooden crochet hooks are handcarved by my boyfriend Tim. Similar to my passion for all things fiber related, Tim has always had a passion for wood, whether it’s chopping wood for the fireplace or dreaming of that perfect wooden cabin in the mountains. When I received the book ‘Handmade‘ by Jessica Kouwenhoven, Tim spotted the tutorial for wooden crochet hooks at once! So the next weekend, we went for a walk and managed to forage some wood we could use. After a few days, the wood was dry enough to carve, and so we gave it a try. It turned out that I wasn’t very good at it, but Tim was a natural! His hooks are super smooth and he always takes very good care of shaping the tip and hook perfectly. We made a set for my mom to gift to her on her birthday, and I showed the set on my Instagram and Youtube channel as well. I got SO many requests after that for a set of wooden hooks, that I was able to convince Tim to make some more.

Hook sizes

Each set will have three handcarved wooden crochet hooks. The size varies from 4mm to 9mm (US size G to N). Because of the nature of the material, it’s not possible to order exact sizes. Sometimes the wood we forage might not be suitable for thin hooks, so please keep that in mind. You are able to give preferences for hook sizes, just put a note with your order. You can also email us with your enquiries at: hello@newleafdesigns.nl.

Bark or no bark

If you have a preference for wooden crochet hooks with bark ON or OFF, please leave a note with your order. If you don’t have a preference, we will choose what looks the prettiest in our opinion. Usually, you get the best result with the bark OFF, as the crochet hook will be smoother. Most of the time, the bark is simply too loose and will not stay on the hook anyway. But sometimes we do get a really pretty result with the bark still on.

Care for your hooks

While these hooks are perfectly fine for every day use, they do require a bit more upkeep than metal hooks. Every once in a while, take a bit of beeswax (beeswax lipbalm for instance will do) and rub it in with a piece of cloth.

While we take extreme care to select the best woods for your hook, please know that wooden hooks are more fragile than metal hooks. If you take them with you for crocheting on-the-go, please store them in a sturdy case to minimize any damage. Wood also reacts to temperature changes, extreme temperature changes (for example going from outside in hot summer weather to an air conditioned room, or keeping your hooks by the radiator) may cause the wood to crack.

Packaging

Your hooks will be packaged in a sturdy paper box with polyfill lining. A small tag with the size written on it will be tied to each hook. The box will be wrapped with twine, adorned with a vintage doily, and a tag will be tied on with some 100% silk yarn handspun by your truly.

The hook set is shipped as a parcel, and we will take special care to make sure the hooks will not suffer any damage during transit. In the rare case that this might occur, please feel free to email us at hello@newleafdesigns.nl

Is it possible to order a set of MORE than 3 hooks?

At the moment we make sets consisting of three hooks, but it’s also possible to make hook sets consisting of four or five hooks. In this case, please contact us at hello@newleafdesigns.nl with your wishes, so we can make a separate listing for you. The price of three hooks is €79, for each additional hook it will be €25 extra.

How long does it take until my order is shipped

We hope to finish your hook set within 4 weeks, after which it will be made ready for shipping.

Shipping

The hook set will be shipped without Track & Trace as this is the cheapest option. If you wish to pay extra for tracking (up to €6 extra), please let us know. Shipping to countries outside of the Netherlands usually doesn’t take longer than 12 working days (3 weeks). However, there have been instances where shipping has taken a bit longer. If it already has been 12 working days and your order hasn’t arrived yet, feel free to email me at hello@newleafdesigns.nl. Thank you for your patience!
