These bulb-shaped safety pins are coil-free and won't snag delicate projects. Also known as pear pins or calabash pins, they are smooth and sharp.
They're perfect for marking holes in the delicate clothes in your mending pile, and for holding knit stitches when darning knitwear or fixing ladders (aka dropped stitches).
Safety pins have three superpowers when it comes to mending:
- holding hems, seams and patches in place while you stitch
- marking holes and other damaged spots in clothing, saving you time trying to find them later
- first aid for clothing emergencies that occur away from home, preventing public nudity until you have time to mend
This set includes 100 bulb safety pins, made from nickel-plated steel. Each safety pin is 22mm long.
Made in China and packaged in Australia.
Packaging details: SOHMO bulb safety pins come in a reusable, lavender-coloured tin made from steel tinplate, with a sliding lid. The interior is coated with a food-grade lacquer to prevent corrosion, and the exterior is an enamel paint. The tin is sealed with a small, clear PVC sticker. Tin size is 80mm x 55mm x 16mm.
