Wool, Hook and Needles – Everything You Need for Knitting and Crochet
At some point, we all envy a needle clicker who fervently works her way through colourful balls of wool, with that one hook or two needles. Especially if we are twiddling our thumbs at a boring, obligatory function, or a ride on the train or bus, while this talented individual is creating something beautiful at her fingertips.
A few decades ago, knitting and crochet were guest stars in the stories about our grandparents. Today, this is a mainstream art, with an ever-increasing community that loves to weave the yarn in unique, unimaginable ways. Whether you are a part of this community, or a beginner in the world of wool, Raaaft offers a comprehensive collection of all the materials you need for any knitting or crochet project.

Some Yarncrafting Every Day May Keep the Doctor Away!
As intriguing as it may sound, yarn heals! Whether you prefer to knit, crochet, sew or a combination of all, working with threads and wool can be very soothing for your body and mind. Studies show that the repeat action used by your hands and fingers has a therapeutic effect in many ways:
- The repetition of the movement releases serotonin, a natural anti-depressant that enhances your feeling of happiness and helps in reducing depression and anxiety.
- Creating something useful and beautiful with just a ball of yarn is known to have a positive effect on self-esteem. Simply visualizing and working on such projects gives some people the strength to walk out of abusive relationships, or cope with an unemployment situation or a personal loss.
- A prominent research study by Professor Herbert Benson of the Mind/Body Medical Institute in the US has indicated that knitting or crochet projects have helped 100% of chronic insomniacs to sleep better and 90% of them could eliminate medication completely. Researchers conclude that the repeat action of the hands while knitting or crochet helps the body and mind to unwind enough to fall asleep naturally.
- Knitting and crochet helps in making new connections. From the friendly neighbourhood meet-ups, to organised public events and virtual communities, yarn lovers have plenty of platforms to exchange patterns, tips, and techniques and connect with a larger community that shares this passion.
