Hand-turned solid wood darning eggs made by Liz in her garden shed workshop in Berkshire from reclaimed beech wood. These eggs each have their own unique character and are wonderful objects as well as useful darning supports.
Measuring approximately 8cm in height and 5cm in width, the eggs have been oiled with food standard hemp oil and come with a swatch of yarn and a darning needle.
I ordered an egg from Socko, having decided to try a few repairs to socks and tights. A box arrived 2 days after my order, containing a perfect wooden egg, needle and thread/yarn. Really good service and the egg is a pleasure to hold. Just need to practice darning now. Thank you.
I'm so pleased to hear it's set to be put to work Sara. Thank you for taking the time to share your lovely review.
...is a thing of great beauty!
It is going to live on my writing desk.
Why thank you Jenny. Sounds like the perfect home for it.
