Connoisseurs of fine fabrics will know that wool has a special place in the world. It’s warmth, softness and natural feel make it the choice of most high class tailors and fashionistas. The one big problem, however, is it’s relatively fragile, not only to wear and tear, but to the hungry attention of moths. Now there’s a way to fight back when your precious Marino jumper starts to age.
The Woolfiller kit offers a simple and yet effective way to repair old and tarnished garments, simply by poking with a needle. Apparently the kit works by using the special character of the fabric. By poking a new selection of wool into holes with special felt needles, the two meld together firmly, and won’t even be separated in the wash. Fiendishly clever stuff.
The kit is priced at €18.00 each including material and needles.
