Darning Mushroom


Bring new life to your favourite jumpers, repair those holey socks, with this beautiful timber darning mushroom.

Locally handcrafted from recycled timber offcuts, this quality polished tool features a hollow handle for needle storage. Genius!

Darning Instructions:

To repair socks or jumpers, push the mushroom behind the hole to slightly tension the fabric, then sew threads across the hole parallel to each other piercing the fabric each side of the hole. Come back along sewing at right-angles to the first threads and weaving over-under to fill in the hole. Tensioning the fabric stops the darning from pulling the fabric together. 

Measures 120 × 90 × 40 mm

Handcrafted in Castlemaine by usethings.
