Our new "Z" hook is handmade of domestic maple right here in the USA. It crochets to a gauge of 1.5" per stitch. A big WOW of a hook. Use it with multiple fibers (you can get a lot of stash worked into this hook) or with our Big Stitch Alpaca and Merino yarns. If working BIG is your thing, this hook should be in your collection. The hook is 9" long and the diameter is 30mm.
