SNAKEWOOD (smaller sizes)
This beautiful hand turned crochet hook is made from very rare and exotic SNAKEWOOD. 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.
The crochet hook measures 5 3/4" to 6" long and is 3/4" to 1" in diameter at its widest.
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.
No request for a longer length if you need a longer length please contact me before ordering there will be addition charges.
Because this hook is handcrafted there will be variation in appearance, grain and color. No two Hooks will be the same! Pictures are examples of what you will receive.

Both figured and unfigured sections are prone to extremely thin cracks that sometimes cannot be seen until after the wood is fully worked and a finish is applied.
Called "snakewood" because of the fairly obvious snakeskin look of the figured portions. In England it's called "letterwood" because the figure was interpreted as looking somewhat like hieroglyphics.
