What makes these needles and hooks so spectacular?
The answer is simple.
Extraordinary quality construction and product innovation.
Revolutionary ETIMO crochet hooks
Doris Chan, popular crochet designer, says it best: “The biggest advantage of the ETIMO hook is the elastomeric comfort grip. Revolutionary. Supremely comfortable, functional, durable. It has a soft, smooth, cushy feel and fits perfectly in my hand. I never want to be without mine.”
ETIMO crochet hooks feature a comfortable, cushioned grip not found anywhere in the market today. Plus ETIMO hooks are made from durable superior quality aluminum with a polished finish that does not flake or chip. Even better, the handle’s length and depth of the hook itself make stitching easier, too. The result is a crocheter’s dream that allows her to stitch longer, with more accuracy and in greater comfort.
ETIMO crochet hooks are available in 10 sizes with a suggested US retail price of: $9.99.
Sucre Beading Hooks
Knitters and crocheters love to embellish their work, but often lack the proper tool to get the job done. Not any more. With Sucre Beading Hooks, beading embellishments are a breeze. Sized just right to handle most types of yarn- and thread-friendly beads Sucre beading hooks feature the same comfort grip as the fabulous ETIMO crochet hook.
Sucre crochet hooks are available in 5 sizes with a suggested US retail price of: $9.99.
Kanaderu Circular Knitting Needles
All bamboo needles are not created equal, something knitters immediately discover when they pick up a set of Tulip circulars.
