Bamboo v's Metal crochet hook

Recommended Posts

I prefer to use bamboo needles because i have a severe allergic reaction to the base metals used in metal knitting needles... Doesn't matter if they're aluminium or steel, they aggravate my hands but bamboo don't :)

I have always used metal and even though I have a bamboo set I still prefer my metals ones.

 

I use metal for knitting as well although I do have one pair of wooden (not bamboo ) which are very smooth and lovely

 

The bamboo crochet hooks for me are rough and catch on my yarn and the smaller size ie 3mm 2.5 and 2mm are just to fragile to work with.

I use metal hooks with soft touch handles. I have a set of wooden ones that cost quite a bit but they tend to catch on the yarn or the hook bit isn't quite right on some of them. I can't use normal metal hooks now either as they cramp my hand but the soft handles eliminate that :)
