WOOLLYKINS MENDING KIT
Natural fibres can last a lifetime when properly cared for. With a Woollykins Mending Kit you will have all of the tools and materials you need to care for and mend your quality, naturalfibre clothing and keep it looking beautiful for longer. Darning kits include instructions for three different methods of darning (needle felting, traditional darning and patching with slow stitch), and all of the materials required, from a darning mushroom made from Australian hardwood offcuts to wool, alpaca and linen threads to upcycled wool and linen patches. Also included in each kit are needles (darning and needlefelting), an ecofoam needle felting block and scissors, all packaged in a sturdy kraft box inside a recycled fabric Bento Bag.
MICROFIBRE LAUNDRY BAG
All clothes lose microfibres when we wash them. If we’re using synthetic clothes (polyester, acrylic and nylon) then we are constantly washing microplastics into the sewerage system and waterways. Place your synthetic clothes in this high-tech microfibre laundry bag (made of 100% polyamide fabric), then into the washing machine, and this little gem will catch all of those harmful fibres in the corners of the bag so you can dispose of them thoughtfully.
You can also use it for your cotton and woollen clothes to protect them from more wear and tear. Tested at universities and research institutes, the microfibre laundry bag can help you reduce the microplastics that are now being found in marine life everywhere.
