Carlyle must have known how strongly we all feel about our haberdashery! We are pleased to announce the arrival of the new range of Streamline Furls crochet hooks to our shop.

Streamlines come in 3 smooth woods – Camwood (blonde), Rosewood (red), and Ebony (black).

Furls have a signature teardrop body shape to fit into the MCP joint of the human hand while distributing hand tension through the wooden body of the hook. This gives the greatest ergonomic comfort.

The Streamlines have increased both the overall body length and the working shaft length for the longest Furl hook ever; a full 17.5cm/7″ in length.

The tip of the Streamlines are less rounded than other Furls for better stitch penetration.

Furls hooks have the beauty and craftsmanship of  hand carved and polished wooden hooks, but at an affordable price.

New In The Shop

Some of you have probably heard about Anna Maltz’s new book, Marlisle: A New Direction In Knitting. It’s created quite a buzz. Two colours magically become three by using yarn held double.

We have a nice stack of books in stock. She uses Daughter of A Shepherd Wool to make the Ess shawl, which we also have.

    Wish I used Instagram. Oh well.


    my problem with FURLS is finally solved thanks to Nikki and especially Lorene from Furls crochet that I thank sincerely.
    My purchase was refunded and a nice hook is offered to me. I will be able to test it with pleasure now.
    Thank you all for your encouragement, which gave me the strength to express myself wherever I could.
