Ainsworth & Prin Bunny Sock Blockers Seconds

£9.00£10.00

Over the years we’ve amassed a small stack of our Bunny Sock Blockers that don’t quite meet the grade.  This maybe because the drying holes haven’t been cut quite straight, because there’s a filled hole on the back or because the wood was snagged while cutting but they are all still perfectly useable and if they are unwaxed they can also be personalised.
Nicola has written a blog post about different techniques here, but really you can try anything, Tattooed bunnies anyone?
The price is for one blocker.
