These hooks have the broadest size range within the Susan Bates family of hooks. Made of lightweight aluminum; each Silvalume hook undergoes a special anodizing process that etches away all surface impurities. In addition, each hook is heat treated for strength and durability and polished for a velvety smooth finish. This hook has a 22in flexible cable; which aids in working a large number of stitches.
