All your blocking materials

BLOCKING

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.

 

Blocking

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.

A group picture of those fabulous buttons

This picture still doesn’t capture the fabulous textures of these buttons.  They are also glazed on the back so they don’t damage the fabric.
