These blocking boards have been beautifully hand-crafted with crocheters and knitters in mind
Very unusually, these new boards have been crafted from local English Elm which has been seasoned for 4 years how and is a gorgeous rich colour.. This little piece of London has been sustainably & locally sourced (non-farmed).
The solid hardwood is perfectly smooth and finished with mineral oil which will not discolour or get smelly, and offers protection against water and wet blocking (but don't immerse in water).
Comes with stainless steel pins which are far more durable
than bamboo skewers, tapered to fit snugly in the holes
and rust/tarnish proof!Brilliant for blocking out granny squares, hexagons, hearts etc, and other small knits like hats, booties, etc.Generously sized:
- 10" (25cm) x 12" (30cm)
- 1" (2.5cm) thick
- Holes spaced by 1cm to accommodate 9" (22cm) square
- 8 x 3mm Tapered Stainless Steel pins, 7" (17.5cm) long
- Felt pads to the underside
This board has been slowly and skilfully crafted. Every single piece is rare and totally unique.
