Reclaimed Wool Blend Darning Yarn - Variegated Set (3 Cards)
A limited-edition trio of variegated reclaimed yarn - ideal for a spot of simple visible mending.
Three stunning colours are included in this set:
- 70's Autumn
- Roses & Peonies
This super soft yarn is spun and dyed using 60 % wool and 40% nylon -it's actually leftover surplus yarn from the textile production process and without being rescued it's likely it would end being wasted and sent to landfill.
It has a similar fibre composition to a classic darning wool or mending yarn, which are often a mix of wool and polyester/nylon. The addition of nylon creates a yarn that's a little more hard-wearing than a pure wool yarn, making it ideal for repairing socks, cuffs and armpit areas that take more wear and tear.
A medium weight yarn, 6-ply yarn which can split into a single strand for mending very fine knitwear, or doubled up if you require a thicker yarn for your mending project.
- darning by hand or with a Speedweve loom.
- embroidery on knitwear.
- mending most knitwear e.g jumper, cardigan, wool socks, or even a blanket!
The yarn is presented on a Ministry of Mending card for easy storage and winding. Our cards are printed locally in Cornwall using 100% recycled card (FSC certified & chlorine-free).
Each card contains approximately 10 m (33 ft) of yarn.
