American Holly Crochet Hook

 The Hooks:

These beautiful hooks are handcrafted by artist Scott Foster.  Turned on a lathe; cut with a sloyd knife, hand sanded, and finished.  Hooks are made to order. 

 The Wood:

American Holly has traditionally been used during the holidays as a decoration but this wood is beautiful when used for handcrafted items such as crochet hooks.  I would describe a finished piece as creamy white. 

American Holly is a bush and not a tree so the access to large volumes of wood are scarce at best.  Normally this wood is used for smaller decorative objects.

If you are planning on purchasing a couple of hooks Gabon Ebony goes well with the stark contrast of Holly.
