This pair of closures is one of Jul Designs innovative and unique closures that screw into both sides of a garment or accessory and snap in the center making them versatile and (re)moveable.
The Latch, small and simple, evoking the rustic and homey hinge on a barn door, gains its visual power in numbers. Imagine 8 of them adorning the opening of a military-style cardigan, creating shaping at the waist and closing a split cuff.
Contains 2, 2.5" wide x .5" tall genuine leather closures.
How to Use/Styling
Styling: For ideas on how to use the Latch on simple garments, take a look at Bayron Handmade's amazing CardiZen, that uses the Latch to style this classic kimono style cardigan in multiple ways.
To use: Unscrew the screws on the back and remove the backing washers from the shank. Place the closure on your piece and work the shanks of the screws gently in between the stitches of your knitwear from the front. Place the backing washers over the screw shanks on the inside of the knitwear. Screw in the screw with your fingers to secure.
To avoid losing screws or backings: Place a tiny drop of clear nail polish in the threaded cylinder before securing. This will keep the closure in place while it's on the body but still allows you to unscrew it when you are ready for a change. Clean the cylinder with nail polish remover on a q-tip between uses.

"I'm so excited to finally find my perfect local yarn store. They carry such an amazing range of yarns, from locally sourced to small batch sheep to skein to naturally dyed. I've been twice (so far!) and I'm always greeted so nicely. It doesn't feel clique-y or snobby as some shops do. Their range is really amazing and so far I've gotten sweater yarn and yarn for 2 different shawls here. Dawn is great with color advice too. Highly reccomend!" - Google Review
"I couldn't leave this shop a high enough score. 10000/10. The instant I walked in, I was given a warm greeting and was immediately helped. I went in for sock yarn but, was overwhelmed by all the amazing local yarn. I love that they have a direct relationship with their yarn artisans. She even stayed a few minutes past closing when I was having problems picking just one skein. Never felt rushed or like she wanted me gone. She took the time to make sure I was getting exactly the righ.t product and even put my skein into a cake That's an amazing service that I've never been offered before. I can't say enough good things about this place. Ill definitely be making the trip there more often!" - Google Review
