A great way to keep a great pair of socks in the rotation. And learned a new skill at the same time.
Wore out the thumbs. Requested repair kit. This helped me greatly, as I ware , the gloves daily . Repairing was a breeze, ( sewing not the greatest) but all went well. Fingers nice and warm again. Thank You, very much. Have a great Year.
Some of the best sock repair yarn I've used. But, 5' per package is a bit ridiculous. I wear wool socks all year and repair several pairs each fall--primarily in the upper heel/Achilles tendon area. Darning this area uses about 7-10' per sock. 10 yards would be a much better quantity.
It was perfect to fix my buffalo wool gloves. I had worn holes in both thumbs and it the correct amount to darn the holes. It was my first attempt to darn so that part was pretty but the yarn was great😊.
Perfect, as usual.
The kit was adequate to repair my BWC socks, but the fact that I needed to repair a pair of socks that are advertised as being tough enough for everyday all day wear is very disappointing. Perhaps you could include a darning egg in the kit so buyers will be able to repair all of the sock failures I suspect are coming.
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?
