Everything you need to begin your Tapestry Weaving Journey (except yarn - this will help bust your yarn stash!) I cannot say enough about these wonderful little lap looms from Purl & Loop. Affordable, functional and downright Adorable! Great gifts for the weavers and crafters out there as well as highly functional yet portable teaching looms. Take these camping, on a road trip or plane when you're looking to something creative with your hands. Also great for kids' projects.
These portable square weaving looms are light enough to go anywhere and absolutely full of cuteness and inspiration in THREE wonderful sizes: The loom frames measure 8" X 8" (6" X 6" weaving space), 10" X 10" (8" X 8" weaving space), or 12” X 12” (10”x 10” weaving space). The open back enables users to create more detailed weavings and easily make changes of color throughout the weaving project. The laser cut looms consists of two 1/8” birch looms hand-glued together for greater strength and then hand-finished with a protective water-based varnish. The looms come with solid wood maple accessories (tapestry needle, shuttle, pick up stick and weaving comb) and birch shape makers. The available options (referred to as setts in this listing) are 6, 8, 10 & 12 setts or ends per inch (e.p.i.). The e.p.i, also called sett, refers to the number of slots per inch. For example, 6 e.p.i. will accommodate a slightly thicker or bulkier yarn. As the e.p.i. gets larger, the yarn or thread it accommodates becomes smaller. For example, the 12 e.p.i. might use embroidery floss or thread.
