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.

Lazadas Blocking Wires

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.



Amazingly flexible Lace Blocking Wires

Super long gold ultra fine blocking wires

These ultra fine wires stand apart from anything else on the market today.  They are perfect for your fine lace projects - light and delicate, yet incredibly strong and flexible. They are ideal for scalloped or curvy or straight edges.  Made from a super-elastic wire with seemingly magical flexibility, they will not rust, tarnish, corrode, or easily kink. They will not stain your knitting, and will last for many years.  You can arch and curve these wires as you need, and they will always return to straight. This special property allows these wires to be used over and over again without weakening from repeated bending and straightening.  Most of them come in gold, silver or pewter tone.

Also arrived today is a big stock of nickle-plated T-pins
