Darning needles are long and have a large eye for easy threading of the thicker threads and yarns most often used for darning.
This set contains 10 sharp-pointed darning needles of different sizes and lengths, suitable for darning very fine to medium-weight knitwear, including most socks. The thinner needles in the pack could be used for hand-sewing and embroidery projects as well. They would work well with Mend it upcycled mending yarn, Scanfil mending wool, Scanfil cotton mending yarn, Cottage Garden Threads or any sewing thread (hand-stitching only; sewing thread is too thin for darning).
Made in the Czech Republic from hardened steel and packaged in a reusable flip-open pack made of cardstock and plastic.
Want to see how it’s done? Modern Mending the book includes 32 pages of darning instructions and 18 pages of hand-stitching instructions, with photographs and illustrated diagrams.
This shop is in slow mode so I can do alllll the things – including running this shop and running after two tiny tots – and enjoy my life. Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.
I'm currently dispatching orders once a week; place your order by 5pm Thursday Melbourne time (AEST) for dispatch by Monday.
(NOTE: I drop off most orders at my local post office on Fridays, but I'm told they don't physically leave the post office and start making their way to you until Monday.)
If you select Express Post at checkout, it will speed up Australia Post's delivery timeframe but won't speed up my process.
After your order has been packed, you will receive an email notification with your Australia Post tracking number, which you can use to check on the delivery status of your order.
Customers in Northcote, Thornbury and nearby suburbs (subject to capacity) can select local delivery at checkout. Local delivery is extra-slow and coincides with my pram-walking/kid-wrangling schedule, up to one week after purchase. ٩(｡•́‿•̀｡)۶
