Have you been wanting to get in on the fun of Inkle Weaving? For warp-faced braids and bands, this loom is the best! Ashford's New design makes easier and more fun that ever to make beautifully patterned straps and bands. Where the old model could be loose and awkward when weaving - you really needed a third hand - this new design allows the tension to be gradually adjusted as needed to keep your warp taut and easy to work through. A HUGE improvement!
The Inkle loom is designed to create long, very strong braids. Inkle bands are strong and useful braids. The warp tension can be adjusted with the adjustable tension peg. Compact size for portability and easy storage. Belt shuttle and clamp included.
Create colorful belts, tassels, bracelets, chokers, dog leashes, ties, guitar straps, shoe laces or trims for weaving. You can sew them together and make bags, placemats, cushion covers and much more. Weave intricate patterns and embellish with different types of yarns, beads and colours.
The Inkle Loom produces a warp-faced band in which the warp completely covers the weft. Choose from the two very portable looms.
Standard Inkle Loom (large) measures 25 1/2" Long X 11 1/4" High X 6 3/4" Deep - Warp length of 110" (2.8m).
