Originally a maker of handmade wood needles and crochet hooks, DyakCraft is now primarily a maker of interchangeable needles and hooks. Most are metal, created from molds based on the original woods after their primary wood source was destroyed by fire, although the handmade wood tools are making a comeback. DyakCraft also sells cloth cases for interchangeable sets. “We use our hands to craft the tools destined to be held in your hands. We design all our tools to be beautiful to the eye and comfortable in the hand,” the site says. Spectacularly beautiful needles and hooks, with cool coated wire cables. Equally lovely spindles.
