The Aficot is a very popular and hard-to-come by embroidery tool that descends from the lobster claw. It is contoured to the hand, to provide a controlled finish to embroidery by burnishing the threads as well as surrounding areas to create a dimensional effect. It is also used in lace making, particularly in Alençon lace. The lobster claw was used in two ways: 1. to polish raised threads, and 2. to smooth down areas of tape or fabric between lines of stitching, to make the stitching stand out better. The Aficot Embroiderer’s Tool is 5 1/2” long.

*Unfortunately we can no longer import Rosewood from the U.S.  This tool is now only available in Ebony.
