Needlefelt repairs - Elbows

problem: worn-out elbows request: invisible mend material: camel hair mixed with mohair
In order to get the right colour I tear off some mohair fibres to blend it later on with our camel/beige colour #204
I turn the jumper inside out, and put the mohair fibres on the worn-out spot
On top of the mohair I put a thin layer of our camel/beige colour #204
I lightly punch the wool into the jumper
The result on the inside after 2 minutes of punching
And the result of the outside, after I carefully wobbled the wool aside with the needle in order to get back the open structure in the knitwear
There you go!
