Bedhead Fiber and In The Wind Goods have teamed up to create a way to keep your clothes in circulation longer with a visible mending kit! Check out Rosie’s Instagram @inthewindgoods and watch her video on how to create a visible mend over a golf club logo!
Bedhead Fiber says:
In collaboration with friend and mender extraordinaire Rosie of In The Wind Goods, we are offering a sweet little mending kits which feature fingering weight, 100% local fine wool, naturally dyed yarn, a darning needle, and instructional booklet on how to create beautiful visible mends on your favorite items.
We are offering a three-yarn kit which includes three different colors of naturally dyed wool yarn, and each ball has roughly ten yards of yarn, which is ample for mending items. While creating this kit, we kept in mind mobility, sustainability, and a fun gift for yourself or a friend.
These kits are minimal waste:
- utilizing odd yardage skeins, sourcing local wool,
- using repurposed wool fiber to hold the needles,
- glass jars packaging, which can be used over and over.
Using natural dyes keeps toxic chemicals from the waterways and bedhead uses water-efficient dye methods. Mending clothing, instead of purchasing additional or new items, reduces textile waste in landfills and reduces carbon emissions from consumption. Every item in this kit was made or reclaimed in the US.
We offer two yarn color options for the kit:
+red, pink, orange
+light blue, mid blue, and dark blue
Due to the unpredictability of natural dyeing, yarn balls will differ with some slight variegation.
