About

Crocheting during naptime!

My name is Auburn and I am a married mama and step-mama to three fantastic girls. We live in sunny San Diego where I have lived all my life. I was a floral designer for many years before my first daughter was born on February 1, 2012. I have been a stay-at-home mom since then. My second daughter was born July 4th, 2014 and all three girlies keep me busy but I love to craft, bake, and crochet in my spare time!

When I first started crocheting I wanted to make cute accessories for the girls and myself. Whenever we wore our headbands out in public people would stop to ask where we bought it so they could get their own! After overwhelming response and love from family and friends I decided to start this little handcrafted crochet business to be able to make the products I enjoy making available for the public.

Thank you for checking out my little shop!

Please check out the shop policies to find out more about my products!

Thank you for stopping by Hook&Arrow's Etsy! My goal is to use environmentally conscious and animal friendly materials to create beautiful crocheted accessories for you and your family.

All of our headbands, bows, hats, and scarves are made with either wool, cotton, or a mix of the two. I no longer use synthetic yarns in the making of my crochet items.

Why organic cotton?

"Conventionally-grown cotton has major downsides. Cotton is a favorite target of pests, which means that farmers usually treat their cotton crops with toxic pesticides. That leads to some pretty serious environmental concerns. For one thing, pesticides can end up contaminating ground water, rivers, streams and lakes. This can have all kinds of unintended consequences -- harming wildlife, polluting waters that are necessary for drinking, watering crops, and supporting wildlife.

In contrast, organic farmers go out of their way to use methods that are less harmful and have much less impact on the environment. For example, instead of dumping toxic synthetic chemicals onto the crops, organic farmers often find ways to attract critters that naturally eat the pests that like to devour their cotton crops -- birds, other bugs, etc. They also use other methods, such as crop rotation, which is beneficial to the soil."

Why wool instead of synthetic fibers like acrylic?

Wool is:

"RESISTANT – Acid resistant, Static Resistant, Soil Resistant, UV Resistant and Burn resistant
◾RENEWABLE – Wool is annually renewable, recyclable and biodegradable. It’s also animal friendly. No animals are killed for wool; they’re sheared once a year.
◾DURABLE – When properly taken care of, Wool lasts well beyond the life of most synthetics and other natural fabrics such as cotton. Its’ often said that a single fiber of wool is stronger than a single fiber of steel of the same diameter. As such, wool is especially useful as an industrial felt material where strength and random fiber alignment is required.
◾HYPOALLERGENIC AND ANTIMICROBIAL – Wool is considered by the medical profession to be hypoallergenic and wool fibers inhibit bacteria growth.
◾HYGROSCOPIC – This means wool readily absorbs AND gives off moisture. Wool can absorb almost 1/3 of it’s weight in moisture yet also evaporate it.
◾ANTI-STATIC – Wool is resistant to static electricity, as the moisture retained within the fabric conducts electricity. This is why wool garments are much less likely to spark or cling to the body. The use of wool car seat covers reduces the risk of shock when a person touches a grounded object.
◾NATURAL – No petroleum based products like those used in synthetic fibers and fabrics like nylon, polyester etc. Wool is washable…you just have to wash it gently.
◾TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED – Wool is cool in warm weather and warm in cool weather. Its fibers form pockets of air which provide natural insulation. And because it wicks moisture away, you’ll feel dry even when it’s damp.
◾FIRE RETARDENT – NATURALLY – Wool has an ignition index of 1112º F and extinguishes itself when touched to a flame. It won’t keep burning which is why firefighters and race car drivers wear it. Man -made fire resistant fabrics use chemicals to make them that way…some of which are being banned in certain places due to their health risks.
◾SOOTHING FOR JOINTS – Wool’s springiness relieves the pressure placed on joints during sleep or extended sitting in office chairs, planes, and overtime! It’s elasticity allows it to recover it’s natural shape and recover from compression. Those who suffer from fibromyalgia, arthritis and rheumatism report that wool supports them and allows a deep, restful night’s sleep.
◾MAINTAINS LOWER HEART RATE DURING SLEEP – A study at Polytechnic Institute in Wales show wool-fill comforters had a lowering effect on heart rates as compared with feather and synthetic fibers. A lowered heart rate indicates the body is in a truly restful state. Wool not only lowered the heart rate of the subjects, but kept them lowered during the night.
◾IN ADDITION WOOL ALSO HAS: – acid/base corrosion resistance, multiple fabric/keratin film possibilities and nanoparticle capabilities"
