Brittany Birch Victorian Crochet Hook Needles - G Needles Reviews
Brittany Crochet Hooks are amazing! Birch is a superior wood for this purpose, its tensile strength and stability maintains size, resists warping and allows for smoothness of finish no other needle can provide.
I have been using aluminum Boye for years and acrylic occasionally which I do not like. I wanted to try these as they are made by a small family company. I love them. There is no thumb rest, but that doesn't bother me. It somehow feels so right to be using a natural hook with natural yarns.
Oh I love this hook! Perfectly balanced with a nice long handle great for larger hands. A good weight- not too heavy or light. And so beautiful- the turning is gorgeous. I'll definitely buy several more soon.
I love working with beautiful tools. I had not crocheted in years before I saw a color pooling scarf sample at SAFF in Asheville last month. I purchased the yarn and pattern from the vendor at SAFF and realized I had no crochet hook. Of course, Jimmy Bean Wool had a large selection of the size needed. This hook caught my eye and I ordered it because it was so unique. When I used it to crochet the scarf, it felt warm and comfortable in my hand. It was such an unexpected pleasure to crochet with. The hook was smooth and slid right through the stitches. I absolutely love it and will buy more sizes in the future.
These hooks hang onto your yarn, without snagging, preventing the possibility of dropped stiches. They feel great in the hand and are also fab for picking up dropped knitting stitches! Great control of tension.....goodbye aluminum!
I love all of the Birch Brittany crochet hooks I have purchased from JBW! They are so rich, smooth and a complete delight to use. I at first got one and then went back for the whole set. I love them and have a hard time going back to the metal hooks I have tons of. I highly recommend these hooks!
