If you've ever lamented a moth hole in your favorite wool sweater or scarf, here's a chance to repair it and give that item a second chance... with a bit of a twist! Woolfiller, designed by Dutch product designer Heleen Klopper, is a special patching wool that binds with the existing wool fibers to repair holes. The end result is a bit funky, but hey! It's better than throwing out a perfectly good sweater.
How does it work, you ask? According to their website:
The fibers of wool contain miniscule scales which open up when they are pricked with a felt needle. The open scales bind with each other and will not be separated. Not even in the wash. Woolfiller can be used with a special machine or with the hand. It is simple, sustainable and satisfying. A new solution for an age old problem.
Choose between six standard kits (18.50 EUR) or put together your own with what ever you want. Each kit contains five pieces of colored wool, two felt needles, a piece of foam and a users guide. Check out a video of how it works at their website.
