This fine gauge mending needle is ideal for picking up stitches in knitwear, or for mending snagged threads, or for guiding the thread on an overlocker or a sewing machine. The mini latch hook at the tip securely catches any runs and leaves no trace of their undoing. Even a pulled thread now quickly disappears to the inside of the knitted garment.
The mending needle was the 2010 winner of the red dot design award for its form and functionality. The non-slip handle provides a good grip for precision handling and it's transparent, purple cap protects the latch hook from accidental damage.
For standard gauge knitting and for use with thicker yarns we would recommend our D027 Single Latch Tool which works in the same way.
