The Mender's Friend!

We are all making do and mending (visibly and invisibly), and there are lots of online tutorials and excellent books available. Now all your mending essentials are here in one neat tin.

Never search for a suitable needle and thread or spare piece of fabric again. Everything is to hand and you can of course add your own threads and fabrics and those spare buttons often attached to new clothes. You know, those ones you put in a safe place...

The Mender's Friend tin measures 9.5cm x 6cm x 2cm high and comes complete with

  • a selection of 9 different fabrics from heavy waxed cotton to denim, tweed, sturdy linen plain and patterned, and cottons plain and patterned too
  • 4 needles including a serious steel one 9cm long, two smaller sized sharps and a good blunt needle for darning woollies
  • 5 different threads from strong linens and a heavy cotton to finer qualities and a natural wool for darning
  • essential buttons and safety pins for good measure

My sweater knitting is in rest mode and has been for a while, but the dark natural does make a good backdrop for all the other shades of my lovely Islander DK🤗🧶
