All's Wool that Ends Wool

That favorite sweater with the stain, or your scarf with the hole in it, can have new life, thanks to this ingenious Woolfiller kit. It's the brainchild of Heleen Klopper, a designer from the Netherlands, and uses traditional wool felting techniques to create patches that actually integrate with the material around them, staying strong even in the wash.

The kit comes with several colors of wool--pick a shade close to the original for a subtle fix, or choose something contrasting for more funky fun. Then, using the special felting needles, you repeatedly pierce the fabric until the patch forms. Felting needles have rasped edges that snag and bind together the woolen fibers. The result will be a handcrafted rescue for your wounded woolens. Made in Holland.

Comments about WOOLFILLER KITS:

This is a fabulous idea - felt wool over the holes in woolens in order to repair them. I have absolutely no experience with felting, however, and while the instructions are simple, I am not completely certain I am doing it correctly. (A link to a YouTube how-to video would be really handy!) The first repair I did hasn't held completely, but it is on a cashmere item which may not be as suitable for felting and I don't think I carried the wool far enough beyond the borders of the whole. I seem to be getting better, though, and given the cost of wool socks it is worth practicing on them until I get the hang of it.

    Comments about WOOLFILLER KITS:

    I ordered this for myself, so I could repair holes in my favorite sweaters. The demo video was great. When the kit arrived I knew what I needed to do and I was able to patch my sweaters within minutes. The only thing I can find fault with: 1. more wool color options would be nice, 2. there must be a few tricks to needle felting in order to avoid some puckering - maybe they could include some tips with the instructions. I guess these are relatively minor issues - the kit is exactly as advertised, easy to use and performs wonderfully. I've now got some funky cool patches in my well-loved cashmere sweaters.
