I cannot say enough about these wonderful little looms from Purl & Loop. Affordable, functional and downright Adorable! Excellent gift idea for the crafters you know and just what you need to bust that yarn stash.
Want to get an idea of what fiber/yarn types and colors will go best together for your desired project? These Swatch Maker mini weaving looms are a great way to test your fibers before setting up a larger loom. The Swatch Maker 8.0, 10.0 and 12.0 have 8 ends per inch (E.P.I.), 10 E.P.I and 12 E.P.I. respectively. The looms are now available in a creamy translucent acrylic or in Baltic birch. The acrylic has a matte finish on the front and a glossy finish on the back. Each loom by itself weighs approximately 4 oz and has dimensions of 6" x 7 1/2" with a work area of 5" x 6 1/4". The loom comes with color photo instructions, birch/acrylic tapestry needle, a small metal tapestry needle for the smaller and tighter areas of the project and a cotton carrying bag. You will need yarn, scissors and a fork or weaving comb for aligning weft. Most of these loom sets will not have the stamp showing on their face.
Sets come with 3 looms (one in each set of 8.0, 10.0 and 12.0), color photo instructions, two wood or acrylic tapestry needles, one small metal tapestry needle and a cotton carrying bag.
Sets with accessories come with all of the above plus a 3" weaving comb, wee shuttle and small pick up stick.
1/4" display stands sold separately (see loom display stands).
These looms in Birch are just the cutest looms ever and crafters just gravitate toward them at fiber shows and festivals. Excellent for teaching classes or children to weave. Will keep kids busy with a fun and quiet hobby when traveling.

This is a fantastic way to use up yarn, ribbon or fabric stash.
The looms are laser cut and assembled in the Purl & Loop Houston studio where they are proud to say they pay a living wage for their employees. All loom packaging components (needles, cotton bag, instructions, etc.) are sourced from U.S. Thank you for supporting small businesses!
