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).
For thicker needles with blunt tips (for darning chunky hand-knit items), try Clover darning needles. For a larger variety of needle types and sizes try the Prym Combi Card.
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 enjoy a better work-life integration as a shop owner and mum of two tiny tots. Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.
