**OPENING UP SOME PRE-ORDERS, BUT PLEASE ALLOW 2-4 WEEKS FOR PROCESSING** as pretty much ALL my stock was sold out at FIBRES WEST, and now I'm prepping for the PEACE FIBRE FEST, which is at the end of April in Dawson Creek, BC. I'll be working hard to get the shop filled up again over the next couple weeks - Please keep checking back if you don't see what you are looking for, as I'll be updating as I get products made up and finished. And of course, custom requests are always welcomed :~) For more information or wholesale inquiries, please contact us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, or use the Contact Us page, or one of the chat options below.
**From Wikipedia: "A boomerang is a tool, typically constructed as a flat air foil that, when thrown, is designed to spin about an axis perpendicular to the direction of its flight. A returning boomerang is designed to return to the thrower. It is well known as a weapon used by Indigenous Australians for hunting.
Boomerangs have been historically used for hunting, as well as a sport, and entertainment. They are commonly thought of as an Australian icon, and come in various shapes and sizes."**
The word 'boomerang' has been integrated into everyday language and has, unfortunately, lost a lot of its cultural reverence. My thought process in naming these blockers as I did was that they are a tangible hand tool, one you use to help create something useful, and in many parts of the world, essential. They are not being used for hunting, obviously, but for a purpose that is tied to something that is essential for comfort and even survival, just as when a boomerang is used for its main intended traditional purpose of hunting. My variation in spelling is to differentiate my tool from that of the Australian cultural icon, to honour it rather than detract from it.
