A fabulously useful new invention.


Magnebuttonheronew_1What is it? 

It is the magnebutton from The Grommet, two shankless buttons backed with strong magnets.



They are the perfect thing to keep a shawl or scarf in place. The magnets are strong enough, according to the description, to hold through five layers of thin cotton. I think that may be an understatement; I have found them to hold perfectly through two layers of fingering weight wool garter stitch plus a cotton t-shirt.

Here is today's demonstration:



The second magnebutton is inside the black t-shirt. No need for a safety pin or a bulky knot, the scarf stayed exactly where I wanted it all day. 

$18/set of two. This is an unsolicited testimonial; I have no connection to the site or the product except being a satisfied customer.

    polymer clay (or Sugru) and neodymium magnets…I think I’ll just make my own, great idea. Keep them away from little kids though
