"I have used these Needle GrabbersTM for years, ...and I am now able to share them with my students and friends!
"Needle GrabbersTM are worn on the pad or ball of your index finger and/or thumb, above the first joint. They are made of fine quality rubber, and are thick and durable. They slip right over the end of the finger, even if you have long nails.
"I am a tight coiler, and when the coil is very hard, it can be difficult to get the needle through the coil. There is often a great deal of drag on the binder. The Needle GrabberTM allows me to pull the needle and binder through the coil with much more ease, without the lost time of putting down the needle and picking up needle-nosed pliers. It increases my coiling pace, reducing the time it requires me to complete each piece.
"I use this tool whenever I coil, whether bundling pine needles, horsehair, or binding a single rod. It greatly relieves the stress on all my joints, in fingers, hand, wrist, elbow, right up to the neck. I have chronic neck and wrist problems, and see a chiropractor regularly. My neck doctor can tell when I have neglected to use my Needle GrabberTM, because my neck problems are much worse!
"These little helpers are so easy to wear. I often forget I have one on. I don't need to take it off to add to the core...indeed, it also aids in pulling sheaths/fascicles off pine needle ends. When I put down my work, I often forget to take the The Needle GrabberTM off, and people ask me what it is!
"This tool is particularly effective when used in conjunction with a thumble (thumb thimble.)
"Also works great as a protective sheath for those areas of the fingers that get rubbed raw by reed, rush or cane while weaving round reed baskets, rush or hand cane seats, etc." - Angie Wagner
*If you have latex allergies, please check with your doctor before wearing. Latex is a highly refined form of rubber.
