We're so excited to reveal our first-ever KIDS BARGELLO KIT! This cute and happy kit is specially made for kids, with fun designs that are easy to complete, and extra-detailed kid-level instructions. We hope this kit will help kids learn new skills, experience the calming benefits of crafts -- and keep busy! -- while they're off school due to social distancing.
Crafting has wonderful benefits for kids, including:
- Practice counting and math.
- Building hand-eye coordination.
- Following written instructions and charts.
- Focusing and calming the mind.
- Unplugging from screens.
- Experiencing the pride of being able to say "I made that myself!"
- Decorating their space with their finished projects, or sending them as gifts to grandparents and other loved ones they're missing.
Each kit includes enough materials to make at least 2-4 finished projects (see below for more details on that), and is great for siblings to share, or for kids and grown-ups to work on together.

This kit includes a pattern with several variations of the wall hanging and bookmark projects, and enough materials to make at least 2-4 finished projects. The number of finished projects you can make depends on which projects you select. Additionally, since there's a learning curve with kids, any loss of yarn due to mistakes will affect the number of finished projects the kit can complete. If you run out of yarn, you can always order additional individual skeins of tapestry wool through our website here!
Please note the kit includes enough tapestry wool to make just one wall hanging with white fringe. If you wish to make more fringed projects, simply add additional skeins of "blanc" or "ecru" tapestry wool to your cart. (The fringe portion of each wall hanging requires one extra skein of tapestry wool.)
The kit includes enough materials to make (1) rainbow and sky wall hanging with fringe, (1) rainbow and sky wall hanging with no fringe, and (1) rainbow wall hanging with no sky background. The bookmark can be completed instead of one of wall hangings, or if you have enough leftover yarn.
