Product Review & Give Away ~ Furls!
Last week, I received a package from Furls Crochet! Carefully unpacking the box, because I knew what was inside… This stunning Furls Wooden Yarn Bowl!
Today, it is my extreme pleasure to blog a Product Review of my new gorgeous Wooden Yarn Bowl from Furls Crochet!
Since the day I opened the box and unwrapped my Furls wooden yarn bowl, I have admired its natural beauty, silky smoothness and quality of craftsmanship lovingly displayed in my crochet space, cradling my yarn. It is truly an amazing work of art! Talk about my delight in NOT having to chase my yarn ball around the table, dropping it to the floor (ugh). With the gentle soft curves of the design and the way the yarn bowl feeds the yarn, there are absolutely no snags, knotting or tangles (especially helpful when working with and holding more than one fiber)!
Now let’s talk about the quality of craftsmanship. The yarn bowl is hand carved by a woodworking artist from one of the most sturdy and durable wood available – Acacia. Carving the yarn bowl from the Acacia wood results in not only a visually appealing piece of art, but also in durability. I just happen to know about the durability factor firsthand. How do I know about this firsthand you ask… well, unfortunately (or fortunately, as the case may be) my BIG dog’s tail wagged my beautiful new Furls wooden yarn bowl right off my work table, smack facedown onto the tile floor – GASP… I hadn’t even photographed it in all its glory for this post yet, and was afraid to even touch it, fearing the worst (holding my breath)… to my disbelief and relief (able to breathe again), not a scratch, dent or crack had occurred from the “wag” mishap. Whew… however, let me just say without the “wag”, I would have never experienced for myself, nor would I be able to to share with you in this review, the firsthand knowledge of the durability of this product!
I recently acquired one of Furls pendants from their Jewelry line. I do so love functional fashion, and it was mentioned on the Furls Crochet website that the Hook pendant could be used as a 3mm functioning crochet hook. For the purpose of this review, I chose to try it out. I placed 5 spools of #10 cotton thread in my new wooden yarn bowl and using three strands, started to crochet – WOW… both products worked to my complete satisfaction. The wooden yarn bowl kept the five spools (three working) from “running” away, fed the three strands with perfect ease and without ANY tangling or knotting. The Hook pendant worked perfectly, as evidenced in this photo.
Seriously, friends! I could not be happier with my new Furls Fiberarts Wooden Yarn Bowl and would highly recommend this product to all of my crochet friends and readers – yes, that’s you! 🙂 I must also give give a shout out to Furls Crochet Hook Pendant. The quality of this piece of functional jewelry is the best – just like everything Furls!
