Sorry, this item sold. Have MagicalMoons make something just for you, or try these other items:
This listing is for two items.
The sword props open the shed so you can pass the weft thru. The beveled edge allows it to double as a beater to "beat" the weft into place once you have changed sheds. The edges are beveled and the ends are rounded to a tip as an aid to "pick up" the warp to make your shed.
Made from fiddleback maple, sometimes called flame (tiger) maple. We sanded the sword smooth so it won't snag your fiber and applied a very light coat of Carnauba and Lavender wax to protect the wood. It will only get smoother with use. The figure in this wood is stunning and feels so nice in your hand you won't want to put it down.
1/8" thick (4mm)
This is for quantity 1.
You are purchasing a pick-up stick or pick-up needle made from an exotic wood called Nicaraguan Rosewood (aka Cocobolo among other names) that comes from South America and is highly prized. The pick-up needle is a pointed, thin, needle-like tool for weaving the pattern weft.
We started with a somewhat square piece of rosewood. The edges were softened and mid-way down the edges are rounded and tapered to the tip. The tip acts as an aid to "pick up" warp threads to make your pattern. There is a hole drilled at the top of the pick-up stick to thread your fiber thru.
We sanded the pick-up stock smooth so it won't snag your fiber and applied a very light coat of our Carnauba and Lavender Wax to give the wood a little protection. It is much more beautiful in person.
This listing is for one pick-up stick.
Width: 5/16" (8mm)
1/4" thick (7mm)
