Locker Hooking Needle
These lightweight Locker Hooking Needles from Kinki Amibari are made of sleek and flexible bamboo. They are 12cm (5") in length with a size of 4mm (G/6).
The locker hooking needle has a hook at one end and an eye at the other and is used to create a piece of locker hooking which is usually used as a rug, wall-hanging, carpets, bags, and other decorative items. The hook pulls strips of fabric or yarn through canvas (sometimes hessian) and a yarn is threaded through the loops created to lock all the loops into place.
Use your locker hooking for small knitting or crochet repairs too!

"Knit your cordiality" is Kinki Amibari's motto.
The longest-running Japanese producer of bamboo needles and haberdashery produces these gorgeous gold aluminum stitch holders in Japan. The factory is found in the ancient Nara area which, since the 14thcentury, has been the place where the best bamboo was grown and processed. In the beginning, bamboo was made into tools for silk weaving. Today, knitting and crochet needles are also made. Seeknit is an old company owned by the same family for four generations. They have a proud tradition for Japanese culture and craftsmanship, from harvest to inspection, making the needles unique and top quality.
