"Thanks so much, Rick. What I failed to tell you in my previous e-mail is what a dream the hooks are to crochet with! 
 They feel so comfortable in the hand, and glide through yarn like silk. Great products!"
 Carol Alexander, Editor, Crochet! Magazine, Member Board of Directors, CGOA

"These elegant instruments are devine! I love the larger thumb spot of the crochet hook, and the wood used for all the 
pieces is wonderful!"

Laurel Hill highlights a classic:
Boye Balene II vintage needles bring knitters a welcome blast from the past.

EUGENE, Ore. (Aug. 28, 2015) – Thousands of knitters are nostalgic for the flexible, quiet Boye Balene II needles which are no longer in production. The good news is that they are available in limited supply at Laurel Hill (, the innovative, environmentally friendly source for needles, notions and accessories for passionate yarncrafters.

Boye needles feature patented speed tips and perfection points designed to help prevent dropped stitches. Originally created to replace real baleen, derived from whale jawbones, Boye was the only manufacturer to achieve the comfort of real whalebone, developing needles warm to the touch, pleasant feeling and flexible. These needles quickly became very popular back in their day and since being discontinued, the few left are considered collectibles.

Laurel Hill has limited availability in selected sizes of Boye Balene II needles that have never been used and are packaged in their original sleeves for a cost of $5 per pair. For more information or to order visit
