This is for TWO packages of ground walnut shells, which are an ideal filling for pin cushions. Walnuts are naturally grown and are sustainable. They are from the local walnut harvest and have been cleaned of all nut meats and debris.
This filling is strong and hefty, and when used in a pin cushion, keep it stable (as in not moving around on your table top like it would with poly fi I am asked a lot if ground walnuts will sharpen your needles. The answer is, no, these will not sharpen your needles. But it is a fine grind, and does not catch on the tip of the needle when you stick a pin in, so it will not dull the pin either. I've included a picture of a pile of the filling next to a pencil to give a frame of reference.
When I made my pin cushion pattern I felt I should offer a filling for it. This filling is very high quality, and I am proud to be carrying it. Each package is more than enough to fill a Folded Star Pin Cushion.
