So, this is something I've really excited to share! 🙌 It's been a dream for a while to put this together. This is our Darn it! Mend it - Ultimate Mending Kit. It's here to help you make your woollens last and get through your mending pile faster! As a lover of wool and natural textiles, fabric/clothing is really important to me and I love to care for textiles but my mending pile is massive! With three kids and living the country life it can be rough. 🙈
But I love mending, it's so very satisfying and it’s good for the soul! But I often don't get around to it simply because I don't have everything to hand. So I've put together this kit with all the equipment and materials needed along with instructions on three age-old, traditional and innovative mending methods that ANYONE can learn. It would make a beautiful Christmas gift for textile lovers everywhere. It's the gift that literally keeps on giving and is the salve to Xmas overconsumption
The kit is entirely plastic free and presented in a kraft box inside a recycled fabric Bento project bag and includes a locally turned darning mushroom made from salvaged hardwood offcuts, quality British John James darning needles, needlefelting needles in a wooden holder case with plant-based earth needfelting foam block and thread snips. Materials provided are all upcycled and re-purposed and include assorted wool, alpaca and linen mending threads and wool felt and linen patches and wool roving in three colours. The darning instructions are beautifully illustrated by local artist Anna Wilson Ink and simply detail three different methods for dealing with small holes in delicate fabrics to big tears in workwear.
If you're already here you know how much value there is investing in quality clothing. And repairing garments is the ultimate in a circular economy, they can be passed on and enjoyed by generations to come and then eventually cut up and reused for patching and repairing other garments. Quality natural fibres just beg to be saved and salvaged and I have kept the scraps from nearly every project I’ve made and knitted. So I love that much of this beautiful stash will be repairing the clothing of families around the country and beyond.
The kits are available to pre-order now. There is a special pre-order offer on for a limited time and we imagine your kit will be mailed around the first week of November - perfect timing for a waste free Christmas.
Would love to hear your thoughts. Do you already mend your clothing? Is it something that you love or does it get overwhelming when you don't get around to it as often as you'd like?
Happy Mending! ❤️ Brenna

Summer is just around the corner and it's time to dig out our Summer hats, check they still fit, that they still offer good shade of the face and neck.
Why is it especially important to protect young skin? A child's skin only develops full protection mechanisms against harmful UV radiation from approximately 15 years of age. Children's skin is very thin and thus extremely sensitive. The skin and immune system of the child can suffer irreparable damage, even if only slightly sunburnt. Learn more...
