I have never touched a loom in my life, unless you consider ones made out of Popsicle sticks when we were young! For some reason, the idea oflearning to weave has been a craving for years. I don't why I decided to pick it up now?! But I did. I bought a gorgeous wooden lap tapestry one that came with no directions. Nor could I get decent information on how I was going to warp this thing and with what! I saw your warping thread for tapestry looms. It was plainly obvious this is what I needed so I immediately bought it. Yesterday, I warped my very first loom! Hurray! Hurray! As a novice, I connotation attest to how this thread compares to others. What I can tell you that it is strong, gives a little stretch you need but doesn't require to hold fast to it or everything will become loosened. Thank you so much!
This arrived quickly and was carefully packed. It seems very strong. As I am not much of a tapestry weaver, so I can't truly compare it to anything else, but it will serve my small sized weavings well. Thank you.
Love that I could buy a smaller than usual amount. Fast shipping! Perfect!
Speedy delivery service and packaged well. Please don't hesitate to buy from this shop. Thank you.
Purchased an Ashford loom and multiple accessories. Highly recommend seller. Items received in perfect condition, well packaged and shipped promptly. Will be a return customer. Thank you.
