These gorgeous Hand-Turned solid wood darning eggs are lovingly made in a garden shed workshop in Berkshire from reclaimed beech wood.

Just like a Cabbage Patch Kid, each egg each has its own unique character and would make the loveliest practical gift for the darner in your life.

Use the egg for mending (visible and invisible), darning, embroidery and yarn tattooing!

Your gorgeous Socko Egg comes...

  • Nestled snuggly in its own recycled cardboard box
  • with it's own swatch of darning yarn to get you started
  • and a darning needle
  • with a needle threader
  • AND some darning instructions! 

Technical facts...

  • Approximately 8cm in height and 5cm in width
  • 100% reclaimed beech wood
  • Oiled with food standard hemp oil

From Emma: "The importance of the art of repair is no secret to those of us who have spent hours making our own clothes but it's a skill that's skipped a generation (or two), that is why I'm on a mission to re-teach the lost art of darning."

We have a great range of Sashiko threads and micro yarns which you can use for yourdarning/mending/embellishing (the variegated threads are amazing for visible darning), including these perfect littleGarden Party SetsMini Collection Packs, or use some stash yarn! 

And some gorgeous reclaimed cashmere threads too!
