In our workshop, Frame Loom Weaving Basics, I demonstrate the basic weaving techniques using a small loom from Purl & Loop. There are several places where you can find a similar loom to work with.
- Purl & Loop — they make a variety of small frame looms in different setts, along with accessories like weaving combs, long yarn needles, and innovative tools for weaving jewelry and “sett checkers”
- Ashford — makes two sizes of frame looms, a small (9″ x 13″) and large size (19″ x 27″)
- Woven Wood Goods — I use their small (10″ x 15″) frame loom for the vertical wall hangings that I have made and their Indigo-dipped yarn needles are my favourite to work with.
- Schacht —their Lilli Loom is the perfect take-along size for on-the-go tapestry projects, and more. The warp can be wound for either 6 or 12 ends per inch, offering options for wider and narrower setts. The 10″ x 15″ is an ideal size for learning to weave, making samples, small projects, and travel.
