Crochet hook collectors, rejoice! One of my favorite crochet hook companies, Furls Fiberarts, keeps cranking out the hits. They just released their new Odyssey Peach hooks, which are not only gorgeous but such a dream to work with. The new hook inspired me to look further into Furls hooks and I learned 5 facts that made me fall more in love with this company.

I’ve been a fan of Furls crochet hooks for ages now. I don’t have every one of them, but I am quite partial to the Steamline and Odyssey collections. I became obsessed with the Streamline Swirls hooks and really went overboard on the Cookies N’ Cream hooks (#sorrynotsorry).
As gorgeous as they are, Furls Odyssey hooks are about more than just the beauty. I did a little digging through the crochet blogs and the Furls website and found 5 facts that made me fall more in love with these luxury hooks:
1// Perfect for Any Hook Hold
Knife and pencil holders can finally agree on something – Furls Odyssey hooks are comfortable no matter how you hold your hook. Knife holders will appreciate how effortlessly Odyssey hooks rest in the palm of your hand. Pencil holders will note that the tapered handle allows the hook to mold to your hand easily.
2// Designed for Speed
One of the distinct features of Odyssey hooks is that they are weighted. I did a review of my new Streamline hooks (watch the full video review here) and did a weight comparison on camera. Odyssey hooks are much heavier than average hooks for a good reason. The weighted handle develops momentum while you crochet, making you stitch faster. After a few marathon sessions with these hooks, I can attest to the truth of this fact!
3// Guaranteed Hand Health
Furls Founder Harrison Richards is passionate about taking care of crocheters. Every Furls hook is designed to cater to the health of your hand, encouraging a hand and wrist relaxation no matter how you hold your hook. Furls backs this claim up with a $500 Hand Health Guarantee. Learn more on the Furls website.
4// Risk-Free Crocheting
As a hook-obsessed crocheter, I’m hypersensitive to defects or problems with my hooks. Snags in the wood or a weird bend in the metal can really interrupt my crochet flow. Furls strives for 100% satisfaction by offering a risk-free crochet experience. If you have ANY problem with your hook, they’ll make it right, no questions asked. I’m part of the Furls Facebook group and have seen the testimony of makers who’ve had their hooks replaced in as short as a couple days. Talk about service!
5// Beauty and Brains in One Hook
As a company, Furls invests a lot into the experience of working with their hooks. But, if I’m completely honest, my favorite part of Furls hooks is how gorgeous they are. There are few companies that can combine beauty and function the way Furls does. Each of their collections (Odyssey, Streamline, Candy Shop, and the original Wood Hooks) is unique and appeals to a different type of maker. No matter what type of hook you gravitate toward, Furls will have the perfect, gorgeous hook for you.
Inspired by the Pantone color of the year Living Coral, the new Furls Odyssey Peach hooks are absolutely perfect for the spring. The handle is a fun combination of bright orange and salmon tones and has the shimmering glitter look that Odyssey hooks are known for.
Unlike past Odyssey hooks, the Peach collection is offered in the classic nickel finish and the luxurious rose gold hook head. Both match perfectly with the Peach handle. I went with the nickel finish for my hooks and I couldn’t be happier. Click here to see the full Odyssey Peach collection, including hooks, holders, and a bowl.
I’d love to know if you’ve tried Odyssey hooks. Do you find they help you crochet faster or make crochet more comfortable for you?
