This hook is shaped with a larger handle to relieve stress on the hand and wrist when crocheting. The hook has an Ergonomic shape that fits nicely in the hand. Because this hook is hand made there will be variation in appearance, grain and color.
This crochet hook measures 5 3/4" to 8" long depending on the size of the hook and is 3/4" to 1" in diameter at it's widest. General guidelines are sizes K 6.5mm) and smaller are 5 3/4" to 6 1/4" long. Sizes L (8mm to M (9mm) are 6 3/4" to 7 1/4" long. Sizes N (10mm) and larger are 7 1/2" to 8" long. Hooks with multiple woods tend to be to the longer side of these measurements. The reason for the variation is that each hooks is hand turned and while the standard shape, which gives the Ergonomic advantage, is maintained each hook is uniquely it's own.

SPALTED TAMARIND - (Tamarindus indica) Also called Tamarind. Spalted Tamarind is a beautiful wood from Laos, Southeast Asia.
Much of this wood comes from logs that were either found on the forest floor or were cut and then allowed to spalt in the very damp warm conditions of the jungle. The colors and various line patterns are truly unique from one piece to another. Heartwood has a spectacular background colors of ivory, yellow, and black lines, which gives this such unpredictable landscape effect.
The Eastern Bluebird is a small thrush with a big, rounded head, large eye, plump body, and alert posture. The wings are long, but the tail and legs are fairly short. The bill is short and straight.
Male Eastern Bluebirds are deep blue above and rusty or brick-red on the throat and breast. Blue in birds always depends on the light, and males often look plain gray-brown from a distance. Females are grayish above with bluish wings and tail, and a subdued orange-brown breast.
