Clover Soft Touch Thread Crochet Hooks

| No Comments

I liked working with crochet thread while making bookmarks last month. Since I need to be careful with ergonomics, I've just ordered 2 Clover Soft Touch Crochet Hooks (with protective covers) for thread from Lone Star Yarns. I bought a 1.75 mm (Clover Size 0, US 8) and a 1.5 mm (Clover Size 2, US 6) which are the largest thread hook sizes available at this time on that website.

[Update: March 8, 2007] Lone Star Yarns closed their website. I just found Clover Soft Touch Thread Crochet Hooks in Clover sizes 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 (estimated US sizes 4, 7, 10, 11, 13, 14) (1.75 mm to .6mm) at Karp Styles.

[Update: December 7, 2007] The Clover Soft Touch Thread Crochet Hooks are also available Angelika's Yarn Store (scroll down the page - look for the hooks with a protective cap). Sizes listed are 0 (1.75mm), 2 (1.50mm), 4 (1.25mm), 6 (1.00mm), 8 (0.90mm), 10 (0.75mm), 12 (0.60mm). Price is $6.50 each.

[Update March 23, 2008] Maggie Weldon is now selling Clover Soft Touch Thread Crochet Hooks for $6.75 each in 8 sizes: 0 (1.75mm), 2 (1.50mm), 4 (1.25mm), 6 (1.00mm), 8 (0.90mm), 10 (0.75mm), 12 (0.60mm), and 14 (0.50mm).
