Mending Macaron Darning Disk - The TWIN set!
A set of two beautiful hand-turned oak darning disks crafted here in Cornwall (U.K) using FSC certified oak.
Use these tension tamers to repair clothing just like a standard darning mushroom, but because it has no stem it takes up much less space in your sewing basket.
The MINI disk allows you to mend hard-to-reach areas such as: pockets, sleeves, socks, cuffs, narrow trouser legs including skinny jeans & leggings and smaller areas on kids clothing. In contrast the MEGA disk (basically a much bigger version of the MINI disk) is perfect for larger-scale repairs, but it's still small enough to hold in the palm of your hand.
Place the fabric of the garment over the disk and secure in place using an elastic band or a metal spring. The band or spring sits neatly in the groove on the side of the disk. To use it hold the disk in the palm of your hand or rest it on a flat surface whenever you need to take a rest.
Both disks have a slightly domed shape on one side and flat surface on the other side. The dome-shape is ideal for darning heels, crotches, armpits, elbows and knees, where the fabric of the garment is shaped, and the rest of the time just flip it over and use the flat side of the disk.
Each disk has a nice organic smooth surface, rounded edges and a natural matte oil finish.*
Every one is unique with different grain patterns and features a nice deep, wide groove to better accomodate thicker fabrics and of course, our beautiful stainless steel springs.
