A darning mushroom is a mushroom-shaped tool, which is inserted into a knitted or crocheted item to hold it in the proper shape and provide a foundation for making repairs. This Darning Mushroom is hand-turned from cherry wood. It is hand sanded to an extremely fine finish, assuring a smooth surface to prevent snags or pulls in your yarn. A hand-rubbed beeswax finish brings out the natural beauty of the wood. Due to its handcrafted nature, there may be slight variations in wood color and size.
