A necessity in ever weaver’s bench… Our favorite brass threading and sleying hook, on its own or with the handy wooden sett tool. (You may want to get more than one!)

Knitty Gritty Project Bags

Knitty Gritty Project Bags are thoughtfully handcrafted in the USA by Magner. Made with the adventurous knitter (or weaver) in mind, they will last a lifetime. The sturdy waxed canvas has a unique feel and look that will age and patina similar to leather. The wax provides a bit of weather resistance as well.
