Ashley Leither Designs Hook and Yarn Review

Hello! A couple of weeks ago, I was scrolling through my Facebook when I saw a wonderful giveaway by Ashley Leither Designs and I could not help but enter. A few days later, I got a notification from Ashley, held my breath and clicked on it. I won her contest! I was so happy and thrilled and I couldn't wait for my package to come in the mail. A few days later it did and I was blown away! Click here to watch my unboxing video, or scroll down for my review.

Ashley Leither Designs is a wonderful crochet designer that has over 200 designs! Her patterns are beautiful and she has a lot of sock patterns too. I think socks are so much fun! Ashley has recently started dying her own hand dyed yarn with bright, beautiful colors. Plus, her husband has started making wooden crochet hooks to sell in her etsy shop, as well.

I opened my package and I was so happy to see such bright, vibrant colors! Yellows, blues and white make up this gorgeous fingering weight yarn. I love how the colors fade into white and then into a new color. I think this yarn is absolutely beautiful and it is so soft too!

The color way is called Fun In The Sun and I think the name is perfect for this brightly colored yarn.

It is made from 75% fine superwash merino wool and 25% nylon.

It is a fingering weight yarn and it has 462 yards and it's 100 grams. 

The crochet hook is a 5.00 mm or size H crochet hook. This crochet hook is 7.5 inches long, the handle is 5 inches, and the aluminum Susan Bates hook is 2.5 inches.

It is light weight and the wood fills so nice in my hand. I can tell it will be very comfortable to crochet with. I love the light color of this wood, with lighter streaks of color throughout. Each crochet hook is hand turned and then sanded until smooth and then a beeswax is applied to the finish. 

I am so happy that I won Ashley's giveaway on her facebook page. I can't wait to make something with this beautiful yarn and use this awesome crochet hook!
