A Hail Mary Decade is one decade of the rosary, consisting of just 10 beads with a cross or crucifix. Those who are not in the habit of praying the rosary may look at it as a daunting task. Lots of beads, lots of prayers and meditations all at the same time! A decade however, is great way to begin praying the rosary. You can focus on just one mystery while reciting one Our Father and 10 Hail Mary prayers. Before you know it you will be praying the whole rosary on just one decade strand. The Hail Mary Decade is a wonderful way to begin a relationship with Our Blessed Mother Mary. We can pray with and to her. She watches over those who honour her and answers those who ask for her intercession.
I offer the Hail Mary Decade Chaplet in various colour combinations. Each chaplet comes with a prayer page. Sample images and prices are shown below.

The Hail Mary Decade Chaplet consists 10 needle-felted woollen beads and crocheted and felted cross.
I create large Hail Mary Decades made from natural wool fleece. I needle-felt woolen beads, each about the size of a ping pong ball, either dyed in Kool-Aid colours or left naturally and paired together with a co-ordinating soft woolen cross. It feels great in your hands, and it is soft and pliable. These oversized decades are great for people with limited dexterity or those who benefit from tactile sensations.
