More of these beauties have just arrived from Tokyo!
Handmade in Japan and designed by Hikaru Noguchi.
There are two styles of these wooden darning mushrooms- each with a great style and usefulness.
There is a hand painted toadstool mushroom and one with a detachable elastic ring on it which is great for holding the 'fabric' in place (not knit fabric through as it might catch). This one has a thinner base that can also be used for working with gloves and thinner pieces.
Both designs are stamped with the Hikaru Noguchi emblem.Handmade in Japan
