Good morning xx.. I have just listed a few pairs of Haemostats in my Etsy store.. I absolutely love using them to help me turn tiny limbs, ears etc when making my toys.. I’ve found it hard to find small ones… but I’ve finally tracked down a supplier and have a few for sale.. link is in my profile xxx
