Welcome to The Silver Hook - specializing in the development and creation of yarn dolls and toys. Using The Silver Hook patterns, each one is lovingly crocheted by hand with emphasis on durability and quality. The Silver Hook currently operates out of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
Acrylic yarn and polyester stuffing are common materials used (they are stain resistant and machine wash and dry!). Natural fibers (wool, cotton) are available upon request with a slight increase in cost.
About The Artisan
The person behind the mountain of yarn is Susan (Timmons) Ross. She has been crocheting since the age of 7 after being introduced to the craft by her babysitter, Marg Murray. Although she has always enjoyed crocheting, she was seriously hooked in late 2007 as she used crocheting to relieve stress. In 2008 she left her banker job to be able to spend more time exploring her creative side.
