Hello and welcome to our shop;)

If you have a special yarn project ahead or just want to order a custom crochet hook with an ergonomic handle, made in the shape and of a wood to your choice ( including combined crochet hooks with metal tips of high quality by well-known brands - Clover Soft Touch ( Japan), Tulip Etimo Rose (Japan) or Knitpro Waves (India) - then this listing is definitely for you. We'll definitely send a lot of photos to you, to choose the most comfortable shape of the handle.

Please, look at the main photo. The hooks in this set are made of the woods we mostly use, depending on their density, the hardest woods are the best for the smallest sizes ( from the left side to the right), it also shows the most popular shapes/styles we can make:

4 mm purpleheart ( the smallest size for all wooden hooks)
4,5 mm hornbeam
5 mm grey pear ( it is advisable to choose grey and beige pear wood for a size of 6 mm J or bigger ones, and for smaller sizes from G to I - to choose denser and stronger wood, such as purpleheart, hornbeam and beech wood)

5,5 mm beech
6 mm beige pear
6,5 mm walnut
7 mm yellow mulberry
8 mm dark apricot
9 mm ash
10 mm green robinia
11 mm bog mulberry
12 mm sweet cherry wood.

We use the hardest types of wood for the smallest sizes, and softer and less dense ones for larger sizes. A 4 mm hook cannot be made from sweet cherry or ash wood, simply because it is not dense enough and therefore more fragile. Please, when choosing a specific wood, take into account the following features: all-wooden hooks of sizes 4 and 4.5 mm will be more reliable and will serve you the longest if we carve them out of a hornbeam and purpleheart, 5 mm and 5.5 mm - of all previous + beech, 6 mm and 6.5 mm - of all previous + pear, apricot, dark apricot, walnut, robinia, ash, 8 mm + mulberry, bog mulberry, sweet cherry etc.

Length of crochet hooks may vary from 5,5" to 8,7", average are about 6,5 - 7" ( 16,5 - 17,5 cm) diameter is between 0,8" and 1". If you prefer proper length - please, let us know. After discussion the details Stanislav will start making custom hook/s. When the hook/s are completely finished ( in 5-14 days, depending on how many orders are in process) we'll send you detailed photos of them, to make sure that you like the result. Each custom crochet hook will be packed in an individually sewn travel pouch/bag, hand made of dense felt, decorated with braid with Ukrainian national ornament.

We'll pack the hooks safely and will ship the order with registered international airmail. You'll pay only for the shipping of the first crochet hook in your order, all the rest will be shipped for free. After that we'll send a notification and a tracking number. Please, check if you received it.

We make ergonomic crochet hooks. An ‘ergonomic’ crochet hook is a hook that is designed to alleviate pain that occurs while crocheting. Most ergonomic hooks have an enlarged handle that can be more comfortable to hold, especially for a long time. We haven’t found much information on exactly why a larger handle alleviates wrist pain while crocheting, but there is much evidence that these types of hooks work. If you’re experiencing tendinitis, arthritis or any other condition that makes crocheting painful… there’s a chance that using an ergonomic hook will provide relief.

There are also many crochet hooks ready for immediate shipping, you can choose and order them at our Etsy shop:

Average Ukrposhta delivery terms to the countries of Europe - about 14 - 20 days, to Canada and the USA - 15- 24 days, to Australia and New Zealand - 3 -4 weeks and more.

PLEASE, NOTE, that there MAY BE DELAYS due to restrictions that have been taken by almost all countries of the world in connection with quarantine due to the spread of coronavirus. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. And we sincerely hope that the situation in the world will improve soon and will return to normal. We sincerely wish you and your loved ones good health and well-being.

Our family workshop produces custom ergonomic crochet hooks from natural wood of various kinds - both local Ukrainian and exotic - such as Sweet cherry, Beech, Merbau, Apricot, Bog Mulberry, Mulberry, Greenish and Beige Robinia, Hornbeam, Silverberry (Wild Olive), Honey Locust, Walnut, Purpleheart wood and other varieties. All materials are solid, natural and ecologically safe, woods have fine grain and high density, they are perfectly polished, items are sanded for a mirror finish and sealed with safe gloss or matt varnish or with a special and natural OSMO oil.

Our main ally and inspirer is nature itself, because it creates such a variety of colors and textures, every single piece - with its own pattern, which reveals itself to us only in the process of turning it. That is why we emphasize that each crochet hook is made in a single copy and we can repeat its shape, but the color and pattern of wood can differ - it is created by nature itself, we only reveal it. Hope for your understanding.

Feel free to ask any questions. And thank you for your interest!))

There are no words for how gorgeous this crochet hook is! I sat and stared at it for the longest time staring at it. The quality, workmanship, detail, is all breathtaking. And it arrived the day before my birthday which is perfect! The added touch of the beautiful case and the hand written note made the experience of receiving the crochet hook all the more special. Thank you! I would absolutely purchase again!!!!

Julie and Stan are so nice and accommodating! I have really tiny hands so I wanted a shorter hook, and we worked together to find a size and style that works for me. The hook itself fits in my hand like a puzzle piece, it’s lightweight and beautifully crafted. The lacquer on it is high quality and my yarn doesn’t snag at all, and slides off smoothly. Hoping one day to buy a full set of hooks to match! 11/10, would recommend.

This is my second purchase from Julie and Stan, but the first I'm able to review, since I wasn't logged in the previous time. Where to begin? My mum loves both of the hooks I got her. They are beautiful, lightweight and help a great deal with her hand pains. Julie is lovely and Stan is unbelievably talented. I ended up telling them what I wanted a lot later than I should have, and Julie was very sweet about it. The hook came with a lovely handwritten card and inside a nice felt cover, with lots of soft packing around it. 5 stars is not enough! They'll be hearing from me again, that's for sure.
