How to mend a hole in your wool sweater. This method leaves behind no bulky knots or loose tails.
The longer we wear our clothes, the lower its carbon footprint. Mending plays a key role in making our clothes last as long as possible. It's a tactile way of treating our clothes like investments and not disposables.
When clothing in disrepair is donated to most second-hand stores, it is sorted into bins. Anything with a hole will very likely end up in the landfill, if not domestically then in Africa where bales of post consumer clothing is sold to a second hand market.
An easy, five minute fix can extend the life of a garment by years! It's so satisfying and puts us in touch with our clothing. When we mend something, it becomes more connected and personal to us. It becomes uniquely ours.
