Materials Used

Knit Outta The Box Afghanistan Cashmere

Sourced and spun entirely in Afghanistan, this 100% cashmere yarn is the ultimate in “feel good” yarn. The yarn is spun by Afghan women from their homes and they receive a fair wage for their labor. As a fair trade product, it not only feels good while you are wearing it, but you can feel good knowing that your purchase is helping someone live a better life.

Susan Bates Silvalume Crochet Hooks

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, which etches away all surface impurities. In addition, each hook is heat treated for strength and durability and polished for a velvety smooth finish. Each size is color coded so you can find the size you need at a glance. The famous Susan Bates in-line head helps reduce wrist motion for fatigue-free crocheting and helps you maintain a more consistent gauge.
