Blocking Wires - from Fiber Dreams
Blocking wires make blocking your lace projects a snap, without the "points" caused by using pins. These no-frills blocking wire sets contain 12 light-weight, stainless steel blocking wires (dressing wires). Each wire is 36 inches/3 feet/about 1 meter long. Set comes packaged in an attractive, slim plastic storage tube (tube diameter is just about 0.5 inch/1.25 cm) with an attractive frosted finish.
Sets come in three options:
LACE - thinner more flexible wires - blue cap
WORSTED - thicker wires that will stand up to the rigors of blocking worsted weight sweaters - green cap
MIX - a combination of 6 lace weight wires and 6 worsted weight wires - purple cap
Wires need to be wiped with a soft cloth prior to first use to remove the minimal manufacturing residue. The plastic tubes are custom made in southern California. After receiving the tubes from the manufacturer, Dave at Fiber Dreams sands and buffs the ends, so that each tube is smooth, beautiful, and nick-free. This is not a toy, so please be sure to keep your blocking wires away from children!
