All your blocking materials

Friday, April 8th, 2016


We have everything you could possibly need here in the shop in order to block your knit or crochet items to give them a really professional finish.



Of all the blocking wires I have tried,  the Lazadas are my favourite.  Apart from the fact that they do a great job, they also fold up into a tiny but sturdy bag 5.5″ X 7.5″ which then folds flat.  No more 3-metre tubes!  This particular set comes with the following:

4 blocking wires 35″  (90cm) long

3 blocking wires 70″  (180cm) long

30 nickle-plated T-pins.

We also stock Eucalan no rinse delicate wash in both 100ml and 500ml bottles.  In fact you can bring back the 500ml bottles for refills, which is good for the planet and also your pocket.

Finally we have T-pins which can be purchased separately.

Blocking Wires – great stocking filler

A great stocking filler, the packaging on these Lazadas blocking wires is even smaller than before – now really tiny at only 6″ x 7″ – you could almost use the package as a bookmark!!  The wires are super flexible and can be bent and shaped any way and they will straighten out afterwards.  The set contains 35″ and 70″ blocking wires and nickle-plated T-pins.

These very flexible blocking wires are much easier to use that the straight blocking wires and they give a very professional finish to your knitted and crocheted garments.

Some excerpts from reviews of the Lazadas Blocking Wire sets:

“I would highly recommend Lazadas Blocking Wires.  The package is small enough to be portable – with the gusset folded flat, it can easily flat.  At the same time, it stands up so you can find it on your shelf.  The wires are very flexible and easy to uncoil and recoil (carefully, that is).  The T-pins can easily be positioned so that they hold the wires in place. The instructions are straightforward and effective.”  Underground Crafter.

“Not bad… in fact, awesome!  These flexible blocking wires are my new favorite toys!”.  Dayana Knits
