Coilless safety pins won't snag fine fabrics. They're perfect for marking holes in the delicate clothes in your mending pile, for holding knit stitches when darning knitwear or fixing ladders (aka dropped stitches), and for holding patches of delicate fabrics in place.
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 coilless safety pins, made from nickel-plated steel. Each safety pin is 22mm long.
Packaging details: SOHMO bulb safety pins come in a reusable, citron-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.

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
