We bought these some time ago from a yarn shop that was closing. She came upon the artisan who made these as she was searching for alpaca and llama woolen specialty yarns in South America.
Each slide features a Y at one end and a point at the other, allowing it to slide through your scarf or shawl easily and then stop to hold it in position. We think they'd make great book closures, too!
The best part about these is the smoothness - they are so smooth to the touch that they will not snag your knitting or other fibers.
Of course everyone of these is different. Some are lighter than others and some are larger, due to the natural materials and the handmade nature of the slides.
The shortest is 5 inches. The longest is not quite 7 inches. Please let us choose one for you.
