There are two types of operations for repairing textiles: darning and invisible mending. Darning a sock or jumper consists of repairing a hole or wear with a matching thread. Our Laine Saint-Pierre darning wool is perfect for this. Invisible mending takes a bit more skill and involves reconstructing the warp and weft of the fabric by taking threads from other parts of the cloth. As for milliners needles, as the name suggests, they are used for hat-making. Their long length makes them perfect as well for basting, gathering and oversewing.
