Henk's handmade crochet needles
At Ja, Wol we are working on a collection of the finest handmade tools and notions that are locally made. To reduce the impact of our footprint and to show off all the craftsmanship that is just around the corner. One of our latest additions are these beautiful locally produced and handmade crochet needles.
Henk started making these needles for his wife and daughter who complained of pain in their hands from crocheting a lot. The base of the needle is full and round and fills up the hand reducing the amount of force you have to use. I've experienced it myself, these needles are a dream come true. Besides that they are incredibly beautiful and with the right care they will last you a lifetime.
We offer a variation of sizes and materials. The needles also vary in length; S (around 12 cm), M (around 15 cm) and L (around 17 cm). Smaller needles often work better for people that hold the needle like a pen. Choose your preference. And if you can, visit the shop to try what feels best.
A great gift for the crocheter in your life! (we have a gift wrapping service, find it here)
Use beeswax twice a year to treat the wood.
Broken needles (don't sit on them!) can be fixed without a problem.
