Helpful for repairing socks or gloves. Slide the large end of the "ball" end into the sock to support the area needing repair. Select a thread close to the sock's thread weight and color, and weave it in to repair the weak spot. Until the turn of the last century, handled sock darners were often painted with amusing domestic motifs.
  • Locally made from select hardwood
  • Natural finish
  • 7"L

"I was so pleased with my own darning eggs when I bought them two or three years ago that I bought more and darning needles and thimbles and will teach my young friends how to repair their own socks, making them better than new!"

"Like Ginger, I used food grade wax on this for a protective finish. I use this product when knitting socks for grafting the toe stitches. It works great!"

"never needed one of these until I started knitting and crocheting my own socks - these are necessary to make quick repairs before all your hard work unravels itself. These are nice and smooth, I suggest food grade wax to keep it conditioned between uses - like the kind you would use on wooden cutting boards - videos of 'how to darn' can be found on Youtube as this has become a lost 'art' of its own."

"I got this just in time. I had a pair of socks that are hand knit that "blew out in the heel." Hopefully it's big enough to do what I need it to do."
