Joyful Mending

Author Noriko Misumi teaches you her philosophy of mending and reusing items based on the age-old Japanese concepts of mindfulness and wabi-sabi (an appreciation of old and imperfect things). In her book, she shows you how to:

Repair any kind of fabric that is torn, ripped or stained, whether knitted or woven
Work with damaged flat or curved surfaces to make them aesthetically pleasing again
Create repairs that blend in, as well as bold or whimsical visible repairs
Darn your handmade or expensive gloves, sweaters and socks to make them look great again!

Discover the joy to be found in working with your hands and the personal artistry within yourself which lies at the heart of this book. While nothing lasts forever, there's pleasure, as well as purpose, in appreciating age and imperfection.

Joyful Mending allows you to surround yourself with the things that truly give you joy, whether they were given to you by a loved one, picked up in your travels or simply have a special place in your heart.

As with other hand dyed yarns, we would recommend alternating skeins every two rows or so.

We care deeply about the environment and we're aware of the effects that chemicals can have on it, so we make every effort to exhaust all dyes in the dyebath so that no nasties go down the plughole. It is not always possible to exhaust *all* the dye, all the time, especially with certain dyeing techniques, so if you are intending on using your yarn for colourwork or with paler colours it pays to give it a wash first, just to be sure.

We try to ensure all colours look true on our monitor but they can vary substantially. If you’re unsure about a particular colourway please get in touch!
