This 14 hook mending  loom has a long narrow weaving surface  made to fit easily into narrow places (socks, pant legs, sleeves) and makes it possible to make a longer patch.

 It comes with step by step instructions (English and with photographs), extra long needle, rectangular wood mending surface, metal loom, elastics and yarn puller.

This is a replica of the Speedweve style mending loom designed in the 1940s and 1950s. They were a clever, practical, mending tool designed to be able to raise alternate threads in a row of warp (vertical) threads in order to make it quicker and easier to lay in the weft (horizontal) threads. 

Although intended for mending small holes in clothing and household fabrics, these looms are also fun for creative fibre art uses. It is possible to create shaped patches and small pockets as well as functional squares and rectangles.  

By combining thread textures and colours you have nearly unlimited creative possibility.
