Make your repairs into artworks with a Notanotherhat Deluxe Mending Kit. Perfect for visible mending of all types, especially darning, but also embroidery, tapestry, and Swiss darning, (to name just a few).
This Mending Kit (Deluxe–Modern Mending) contains:
– 20 x individual MEND IT cards in assorted rainbow shades
– 1 x 'Modern Mending' 2nd edition by Erin Lewis-Fitzgerald (272-page hardcover book)
– 1 x Australian handcrafted timber darning mushroom from Timber Dimensions
– 1x 10-pack of Prym darning needles
– 1 x pair of Birch thread scissors
– 1 x hand-stitched needle book made from pre-loved vintage blankets
Each Mend It card supplies between 6 and 20 metres of yarn, depending on its thickness and type of fibre. The type of fibre is specified on the front of the card (most will be wool). The weight or thickness of the yarn/thread is specified on the back of the card (most will be fine, suitable for darning).
We do NOT photograph every Mending Kit sold. This listing is representative of a TYPICAL Mending Kit (Deluxe). No two kits will be identical due to the limited edition, re-made/upcycled, handcrafted nature of some of the materials, but each will contain the items listed above.
All notanotherhat yarns are reclaimed from pre-loved items of knitted clothing, sourced locally. The yarns are from quality, natural fibre items that I gently take apart then systematically unravel, skein up, and hand dye using professional, colourfast, Australian dyes. These yarns are then wound onto MEND IT cards and arranged in lovely rainbows awaiting your mending inspiration.
The gorgeous timber darning mushrooms are handcrafted by Timber Dimensions in Queensland, Australia.
Please read my frequently asked questions (FAQs) for further details regarding the nature of my upcycling process, as well as information on washing and caring for items mended with MEND IT upcycled yarn.

I was pleased with how quickly this arrived from Australia to SF Bay Area in US (11 days I think)! Lani was such a pleasure to communicate with. I have already made great use of the mending kit! The yarns are beautiful and great quality, double bonus that they are up cycled. Thanks Lani for the great products!
Has to be one of my favourite Etsy purchases ever!! :) Just beautiful and sew useful. (hehe) Thank you!! I’ll be back for more thread soon!
Perfect starter kit with a fabulous array of beautifully colored thread! So glad I got the one with the book as I really found it to be super valuable.
