I'd love to get parts of this, vs the bundle, next time. And don't forget us crocheters! :)

Hooks. Like Clover Amour, the new ones, the LARGER ones. In a lovely set. :) Knit/crochet accessories like stitch markers, row counters, etc. Yarn bundles. And for me, yarn must be not sourced from animals. So cottons, chenilles, acrylics, but the good stuff. :)

The Clover Amour & Soft Touch are my favorites! I wouldn't be joining a drop for a set because I pretty much have them all, but just wanted to endorse the brand. I might join a drop for non-wool yarn though, since my mother is allergic to wool and it can be challenging to find good yarn that I can use for her. Alpaca would be fine too, LOVE it and it doesn't contain the lanolin that makes wool an allergen. (No ethical qualms on my part)

Do you have the newer ones, the large ones? they're plastic, but I'm still wanting them. :)

I only started crocheting a few months ago, so I would assume they are all new ones if they have changed something in the design. I have one of the plastic hooks, an 8mm, I don't do much with chunky yarn so I have only used it for one project. It doesn't glide through yarn quite as well as their metal ones, but it is still much much better than the Susan Bates one I tried before I found the 8mm Amour. I assume they are made of plastic for weight reduction, and they're light and easy to use for hours. (Although I've only crocheted for maybe 5-6 months, I tried a lot of hooks before settling on Clover)

The larger ones for bulky yarn came out about 18 months ago. So I call them "new". Ha. And yes, plastic because of weight. I love my Clover Amours, I've tried tons of hooks, and had settled for the Boye. Then tried Clover. And they're delicious. My favorite.
