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.

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

Lazadas Blocking Wires

Just arrived today and they are fabulous!

The Lazadas blocking wires are used for shaping and setting knitting or crocheted projects.  Blocking your finished garments gives them a really professional finish and will help to smooth and uncurl edges, open lace work and shape the pieces to the exact measurement you want.

These wires are super elastic – they can be bent but will snap back to their original shape after use.

They are the most versatile blocking wires and can be used for straight, circular, half moon and even scalloped shapes. They can also be used for blocking fine lace to chunky yarn and they will not leave rust marks on your garment.

The packaging is the best I have seen – the little bag measures only 6″ x 9.5″ and has a gusset so it can stand up or fold up flat and takes up hardly any space.

So far, they have been vary favourably reviewed!

They come in 4 different sizes and cost from e24.99.
