Socko Darning Egg
New at Loop!
These make the perfect gift for anyone interested in visible mending, darning and embroidery. It also makes an ideal sock darning kit.
The sweetest handmade solid wood darning eggs have made their way to us. Each one comes in it's own little box made of recycled packaging with a swatch of thin yarn, a darning needle, a needle threader as well 3-step darning instructions to get started.
There is even a note that says 'Happy mending!' The whole box is beautifully thought out. The wooden egg also sits on a little nest of protective packaging.
These hand-turned solid wood darning eggs are made by Liz in her garden shed workshop in Berkshire from
reclaimed beech wood. Each egg has its own unique character and is a wonderful object as well as useful darning support.
Approximately 8cm in height and 5cm in width
100% reclaimed beech wood
