Mini-Loom Surface Darning Machines
Mini-Looms, the modern-day reproduction of the original Speedweve mini darner. By weaving strands of thread or yarn on this contraption, you are able to create a neatly woven patch to repair your textiles. This particular loom was manufactured by Mission X Goods.
Looms are available in 3 sizes, 10 hook, 14 hook, and 21 hook. Read below for a description of each, and scroll through the photos for examples.
10 Hook: hooks are spaced slightly wider apart, making it easier to work with thicker yarn. The darned patch is the same size as the 14 hook. Includes set of darning needles and a little yarn for practice.
14 Hook: most common size, good for use with thinner yarn or embroidery/sashiko thread. The darned patch is the same size as the 10 hook. Includes variety pack of longer, thinner darning needles and some yarn for practice.
21 Hook: this loom is big! the hooks are closer together making them better for use with a thinner yarn or sashiko/embroidery thread. Includes single long, 5" darning needle, perfect for this extra wide loom and yarn for practice.
These little gadgets can be a little tricky to figure out. I recorded a mini-workshop to help you get started right away!
