This listing is for an 8mm Hartman Ball Handle Hook. It measures about 4-1/2" in length. The brass shank is about 2-1/4" long and about 1/4" in diameter where it meets the ball handle. The ball handle is yew wood with beautiful grain lines and smooth finish. Each hook is unique.
This 8mm hook is the one I use most of the time. I love the way it fits perfectly into the palm of my hand. (See 3rd photo). The 4th photo shows a comparison of the hooks I offer. The 8mm is the 2nd from left.
A Hartman hook is a great investment for primitive rug hooking. It is so easy to pull your loops through your backing fabric which makes it easier on your wrist. The wide (1/4") metal shank is a great help in making the hole large enough for your 1/4" wide (or wider) strips to slip through like butter :)

Special Orders are non returnable. Wool Kits and Wool Packs that have been cut in strips for rug hooking are not refundable.
Designs and patterns that have been customized and/or personalized cannot be returned.
Cotton Monks Cloth is 100% cotton woven with two warp threads and two weft threads has 12 x 13 holes per inch. It is great for hooking with all cuts of wool, from fine to primitive cuts. It is less expensive than primitive linen.
Primitive linen is 100% linen, the most durable backing fabric. It is more expensive than other backing fabrics. The evenly spaced weave of 12 x 12 threads per inch makes it great for all primitive cuts, #7 and wider.
Beginners usually have an easier time hooking with linen.
Both are fine and long lasting choices for the backing to support and make your hooked rug durable. I use both types, but usually choose linen for larger projects.
Yes, if the difference is $3.00 or more. Etsy calculations, especially on orders with multiple items, can add up to more than the actual shipping. I will let you know when your order is ready to ship if you will be receiving a shipping refund.

Gorgeous, super high quality rug hook. So pleased! As a bonus… This shop owner really goes above and beyond — and then some! There was a technical/software issue with my order having to do with an Etsy glitch (not with this shop,) and the shop owner was so patient, regularly in touch, kind, and friendly until Etsy got it resolved. I’ll shop here again and again!

Not sure how I feel about this hook, just started using it today. I'm thinking I'd like a longer shank if that is even possible in a #8. I will continue to shop here.
