The kit comes in a sturdy cardboard storage box.
Featured in 2019 on NHK TV’s Good Morning Japan as a useful new Japanese invention!
This darning mushroom consists of 3 wood sections that can be screwed together to make 3 different sizes. The shortest has a wide bottom and can be used while resting on a table. The tall and and extra-tall can be used while holding the handle. The light colored wood is smooth and has a nice weight.
Changing the size of the mushroom is easy and quick to do. Please do not forcibly tighten the darning mushroom screws as this may damage the them.
There are 3 needles that come with this kit. The needles come in a small, plastic storage pouch. You should select the needle according to the thickness of the yarn you are darning with. You will receive one of each of the following needles:

A rubber ring is also supplied to secure the fabric to the darning mushroom.
4 cards of darning yarn are included in this kit so that you can start darning or embellishing your clothing right away. The yarn is 50% Wool and 50% Acrylic and is made in Japan for darning knit fabrics. Each darning yarn card features 3 colors. Each color is about 16 meters in length.

These are the same cards that are seen here:
The kit also contains a tiny thread snip (kuroha) that arrive in their own plastic sleeve. These snips work perfectly for snipping the yarn however they are not very sharp so they can only be used for snipping yarn.

A webpage link to a series of videos on darning is also provided in the instruction sheet. These videos are in Japanese but show how the darning mushroom can be used.
