What is Darning you ask? Well knit happens and it is when a knitted garment is in need of repair. Repairs are easy and quick, DON"T wait until the hole is large and harder to repair!! And with a little bit of help from youtube, or wikihow help is just around the corner for easy directions on how to repair. Buffalo Wool Company has put together kits to help in that repair process as well. The kit includes a small spool of yarn to match your garment, darning needle and set of instructions.

Each kit contains:
- 1 (one) darning needle
- 60 inches of yarn (choose the fiber that fits your product)
I was impressed by the high quality of this little kit. It came with everything that I needed. I had seen a video on the internet on how to darn a wool garment and the needle and wool worked well with this process. Great product.
I am ordering a needle threader, otherwise I can't get the thread into the eye of the needle. I asked my partner, who has more sewing experience and better eyes, and she could do it, but I can't. You might consider putting a needle threader into the kit.
Also, I have more holes in socks to darn than the thread provided in the kit will cover. I like this thread and will order more, but more thread in the kit would be good, too.
Or maybe a two sizes of kit? Bigger kit has more thread and a needle threader? Or needle threader as an option for those who need it?
Including the needle is the kind of attention to detail that makes you guys so great.
it had the needle I was looking for and yarn the right weight. it was everything I was looking for and nothing I didn't want.
This was great and I saved a pair of socks that I LOVE.
I have a pair of gloves I got several years ago at the SAFF fair held near Asheville, NC. Love the gloves but needed to darn a wear place after much use. While I love the kit, I did have to call (great folks!) to find it on the website. Maybe I'm computer-challenged, but its location was not clear.
The kit itself is great because it includes a darning needle! And the service was wonderful.
Eyeing those great socks next!
May have gotten lost in my freight forwarding solution, because Canada.
There was never a tracking number for the kit. When I emailed the company they said it should arrive on a Thursday and a week later it still wasn't here. I ended up cancelling. Very disappointing. The kit was to repair a hole in one of their gloves. The hole developed after one season of light wear. Disappointed in the quality of a $95.00 pair of gloves and the poor service on the kit.
Hey Jim, we are sorry to hear it all going so wrong for you and your order. We acutually sent you two kits for your order (one to repair and an emergency one when out again). Your order should have arrived by now (no tracking since it weighted nothing and was shipped 1st class envelope) and your order was refunded due to the delivery delay. The gloves are a natural fiber thats why they are so warm and on occasions they can break it is caught on something but the repair kit will do the job well. May you find more happy days ahead of you. Kindest regards Theresa
