Ilona Heritage Hooks are hand-crafted from Rosewood, on demand. This means there is a waiting period involved. But these hooks, are so worth the wait! Each hook is individually tested after it has been hand-crafted and the test-swatch is included with your hook for you to see.
When you start using your Ilona Heritage Hook, it will just naturally fit into your hand. You will wonder why it took so long for you to have a hook like this in your hand. The first few stitches will feel strange as there is an enormous difference between wood and plastic or aluminium. Soon however, you will not want to put it down.
With continuous use, your hook will darken and become even more smooth, as the yarn continues to gently polish the wood.
Your Ilona Heritage Hook is special and it deserves special care. Treat it to quality wood oil once a month and polish it lightly with a soft cloth. Keep it in a special place to protect the delicate hook. Don’t ever try to change the size or shape of the hook; you will damage it beyond repair.
Crochet has always been therapeutic. With an Ilona Heritage Hook, it is so much more.
