Birch is the wood used to make Brittany crochet hooks. This wood’s characteristics are tensile strength, stability, all resistance to warping, and allows for an exceptionally smooth finish.
Each hook has a beautifully carved end. The hook is inline with a short throat, and the head is pointy. There’s no thumb rest, and it’s cylindrical.
If you’ve experienced yarn sticking on your wooden hook, you’ll be pleasantly surprised as to how the yarn glides on the Brittany Hooks.

How To Care For Wooden Crochet Hook Brittany
Wood does start to dry out after a while, and the finish/waxing can wear off with use. Using Brittany wax is a good idea; it will restore your hooks to brand new.
The oils on your hands and yarn can accumulate on your hook, and it will clean this and any other grim off.
In certain climates, birch wood needs a little extra care, which will help protect hooks from dryness and humidity.
To apply, follow these steps-
- First, use a cloth to apply a small amount all over the wooden crochet hooks.
- Let the hooks sit for 24 hours
- Then take a clean, soft cloth and buff the hooks
- Your hooks will be bright and shiny and ready to use
If you enjoy using decorative wooden hooks then Brittany hooks are an attractive option.
