Give old fabrics and knits new life with this versatile Darning Mushroom set. Darning mushrooms help hold fabric taut so you can more easily mend holes, tears, or worn patches. They can also be used when you just want to add decorative stitches to clothing or other fabric.
This smooth wood darning mushroom comes as three separate parts that can be screwed together to make different combinations. Use the small mushroom for small jobs (think holes in knees and elbows). Attach the long hand for hard-to-reach areas like sock toes and mittens.
This set comes with everything you need - including needles, various colors of mending yarn, and the cutest little snips - so it's perfect if you're just getting started with mending. The set comes packaged in a pretty box that doubles as storage, so it also makes an excellent gift!
Darning Mushroom set includes:
Darning Mushroom - 1 each of a scabbard, handle, and base
Ring elastic to secure the fabric and keep it taut
Darning thread in 4 colorways - Monochrome, Gray, Beige, and Navy
Yarn cutting scissors
Instruction manual (instructions are in Japanese only)
This set is imported from Japan, and please note that the instructions included are in Japanese only. Mending has become a popular activity for creative and sustainable reasons, so online tutorials are widely available.
