This week’s free hook of the week is a beautiful Camelthorn wood, 5mm crochet hook. Camelthorn is a beautiful South African hardwood related to the Acacia tree with a fiery red-black-yellow grain pattern.
This hook is an absolute beauty. Reblog or heart this post to be entered into next week’s drawing for the free hook of the week!
A recent custom order by one of our wonderful customers opened our eyes to how scandalously beautiful wooden crochet hooks can be. Her order combined two Black and White Ebony hooks with a Brazilian Bloodwood hook in a beautiful fusion of Rocky-Road ice cream colors with Deep, scarlet and crimson colors.
Both Black and White Ebony hooks have some of the most mysterious and mesmerizing dalmatian-like striping, and this wood is probably one of the smoothest woods to hold in your hands.
The Bloodwood hook, on the other hand, is a solid but gorgeous red color. Furls has to boast a little bit about how perfect the balance on this hook is; since it balances perfectly on that tangential teardrop body (picture above) it means the weight of the hook is distributed evenly throughout the hook. This makes for the most comfortable crocheting experience on earth as the perfect weight and balance fit harmoniously in and fuses with your hands.
