Selbu Sock Blockers are a tool used by hand knitters to allow their knitted socks to dry and to block, which means to take the proper shape and size.
Selbu Sock Blockers are made from 4 mm Norwegian Birch from the Trøndelag area of Norway. They are hand polished with 100% pure bee’s wax, so that they slide smoothly into your hand knitted pieces.
As the Selbu Sock Blockers are handmade of wood, with time and use, some areas may develop some roughness.
This can be corrected by a light hand sanding with a very smooth sand paper and applying bee’s wax when needed. Clean with a non-abrasive damp cloth if necessary.
Sold in pairs.
NOTE: All sizes of the Selbu sock blockers are connected to the LENGTH of your foot, rather than your shoe size. So, it is important to measure the length of your foot before ordering.
Length 22 cm (approximately 8 and ½ inches)
