Once mending-kit staples, vintage darning mushrooms and darning eggs are now rare treasures.
These vintage sock-mending tools were plucked from a time machine, and once they’re gone, they’re gone.
Each tool is one of a kind and sold as is, in preloved, working condition, ready for mending. View each photograph to inspect wear and tear from the original mender owners.
Darning mushrooms have a larger work surface and are ideal for sock heels and larger garments; darning eggs have a smaller work surface and are great for sock toes and other hard-to-reach areas.
Made in the USA (a long time ago) from 100% wood (unless otherwise identified).
Want to see how it’s done? Modern Mending the book includes 32 pages of darning instructions, with photographs and illustrated diagrams.
