Item details

This listing is a kit add-on, or upgrade, and requires a BASKET BASE, which is NOT INCLUDED. Please see other listings for basket bases!

Purchase of this listing turns your base into a kit with everything you need to make a pine needle basket!

It is a basic materials and tools package, and perfect for the beginning coiler, or as a quick refill if you are out of supplies.

This materials package includes:

•1/4 pd of dried pine needles with the caps (mostly) on (may be green or brown, according to availability.)
•1 bolt of sinew (your choice of color, see below)
•Needle Grabber Duo
•Yarn Darner Needle
•Cake of Beeswax
•4 pages Instruction for coiling with these materials, including pictures

(Please note this listing DOES NOT include a basket base. Use your own, or buy one of mine...)

Sometimes green pine needles are available. If available, the green (dried) pine needles in this kit were gathered from a storm-downed tree branch, and dried out of direct light, which let them retain their naturally green light color. They are fabulous for dying, if you are interested, Rit dyes work very well. If you do not dye them, they will eventually brown with time. They brown faster when exposed to sunlight.

Kit Add-on includes enough needles to make a medium/small basket (depends on your base size sample shown in last photo also used approx. 1 oz two-tone dyed needles for contrast)

Suggested tools for use with this kit:
•clothespin or clip

choose from this listing for sinew colors:

If you are interested in colored accent pine needles to complement your kit (as shown in the last photo,) check
