"The best blocking wires we've ever used."
We don't usually get excited about gadgets, but these high-grade stainless steel blocking wires have us thrilled. If you've used other wires, you'll appreciate the way the hand-polished tips glide in and out of your stitches without a hitch. Of course they're rustproof so they're great for steaming and wet-blocking alike.
If you've never used blocking wires before (also known as 'dressing wires' in the European knitting world), you'll love how few pins it takes to get gorgeous straight edges, or perfectly pointy points on your lace. Add a blocking board, and your finishing will visibly improve—plus you'll actually enjoy it!
Created exclusively for us by HandWorks Northwest, this 20-wire set contains: 6–33"/84cm heavy-gauge wires; 8–36"/91cm and 4–18"/45.5 cm medium-gauge wires (nice for soft curves); and 2-36"/91cm light-gauge wires. They all come in a handy storage tube with thorough blocking instructions and a thoughtful little polishing cloth in case your tips need a touch-up.
