We laser cut the blockers from 4mm thick Greencast perspex. Greencast perspex is made from 100% recycled materials - and it can be 100% recycled again into more perspex. That means it never needs to become landfill.
The blockers come with stands so you can pop them out of the way on a window ledge, and air can circulate freely round them, helping your mittens to dry quickly. They're also great for helping create great photos - the clear perspex makes knits look like they are floating.
There’s a movable thumb so it’s easy to get the glove or mitten on.
There’s a separate insert for the top so you have a rounded edge for blocking mittens.
As the blockers are perspex you can't dmage them by putting something wet on them to block - perspex is completely untroubled by water.
Blockers come as a pair and are supplied in an embroidered linen bag which closes with a handmade jesmonite button.
Blockers will be available in 3 sizes. To work out which size suits you best measure round your hand just below your knuckles.
Large blockers suit hands up to 19.5cm / 7.75 in
Medium blockers suit hands up to 18cm / 7in
Small blockers suit hands up to 16cm / 6.25in
Pick the size you'd like from the dropdown menu and we'll get your order made up and posted. We've got several sets of each size cut ready to post, then we'll cut to order so you can always get the size you'd like.
To ensure your blockers arrive safely they'll be packed into cardboard book wraps - that gives plenty of protection. This means that blockers will be posted alone, as yarn doesn't fit well into this style of packing. Prices include UK postage - if you live outside the UK just select where you'd like your blockers sent and the correct postage will be added.
Mittens are not included - the first mitten photo was darkened so you can see the blockers better. The second miten photo is correctly exposed and you can see how the blockers almost disappear.
