Katrinkles – Darning Loom
4 in stock
You love knitted socks, but you tend to make holes in them? Or your favorite woolens have survived an attack of the Great Winged Enemies but lost some fiber to them? Thanks to Katrinkles Darning Loom, you will be able to patch them quickly and easily, even if embroidery is not your thing!
Indeed, we are not all equal when faced with the smallest of needles. If some of us are masters at knitting or crocheting, just give them a knitted item to darn and there is nobody anymore. But with this set of tools designed by Katrinkles, darning (almost) becomes a child’s game.
Using a weaving technique, and with a well conceived tool, you will be able to easily hide the horrible holes, with a patch that looks smooth and tidy. And if you play on the colours, you can even make them become an art piece! Actually, if you are good at embroidery, you can also use it and then embellish your work.
Each set contains:
- a mini weaving loom made of wood,
- a heddle, to help weaving the thread evenly,
- an elastic band to keep everything together,
- a tapestry needle,
- an instruction leaflet.
Note: because the tools are made of natural material, they can slightly differ from the ones you see in the photos.
This darning loom designed by Katrinkles is an essential tool to have, if you want to keep your woollens for a long time despite life contingencies. If needle mending can be for some a meditative experience, for others it is easier to have a guide to work with. Above all if you are not handy with a wool needle!
And if you need some help to avoid the attack of “the insects that must not be named”, Katrinkles thought about that too. Indeed, thanks to this mini-ruler made of cedar wood, you can protect your WIPs in their bag. And those cute cat heads will keep them away from your stash and your closets!
