Blue Butterfly Originals “Skipper” Pin Looms in a wide selection of sizes!

Available in: 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 6x6, 8x8, 12x12, 2x4, 2x6, 2x8, 4x6, 4x8, 6x8

Steel pin and native cherry hardwood hand looms. Hand-crafted in Indiana by Alan Hokenson of Blue Butterfly Originals. Each loom includes a 5" weaving needle and instructions.

Miniature weaving looms and small hand-looms, so popular from the 1930’s into the early 1970’s, are happily making a come-back in the craft world. Versatile and portable, projects can range in size and complexity from a single woven square for a mug rug, to several hundred connected squares for a bed-spread.

What makes these looms so unique is the special method with which you can warp them. The majority of the yarn is laid out on the loom in three “warp” steps. Then it is all tied together with one “weaving” step. To see it in action, check out this page: http://www.mielkesfiberarts.com/pin-loom-weaving-a-photo-tutorial/

The Blue Butterfly Originals Pin Looms have been updated from the vintage versions with increased pin spacing, which makes it possible to weave with a wider range of yarn sizes. Marks and numbers help keep weaving fun and methodical. The sett of weaving on these looms is about 4 ends per inch, so they are perfect for heavy worsted to bulky yarns. Finer yarns will result in a more open weave structure. This does mean that if you are trying to match to an older style loom, such as a weavette, the sett will not be compatible.

The woven squares and rectangles are building blocks that can be combined into a variety of patterns for a variety of projects: afghans, pillows, scarves, and table-runners, to name a few.

We offer books and a DVD on the Pin Looms:

Please note, patterns that have a definite center or symmetrical pattern will need to be altered if they are written for the Weavette or Zoom loom, as those looms have more pins then the 4x4 Blue Butterfly.

Also available in triangle, in 2", 4", 6" and 8". Allowing you to make quilt block style patterns as well as geometric purses, animals and clothing. www.etsy.com/listing/483631663/triangle-loom-cherry-pin-loom-tri

We also offer the 2x2, 4x4, 6x6 and 8x8 in Walnut Wood. See here: www.etsy.com/listing/483924099/walnut-pin-looms-from-blue-butterfly

Yarns of various fiber content can be used to weave the squares. However, using wool yarn allows fiber artists to combine two interests in the world of wool: weaving and felting. Woven squares can be hand or machine fulled (felted), even further expanding the creative possibilities!

We ship most items in 1-5 days. Please check the shipping tab to see if the item you are looking at is an exemption to that. We ship through the US Postal service, and most packages go priority or first class with a few large items going parcel post. Small items that you select parcel post for will still be sent priority at no extra charge to you. Some larger items will ship UPS.
For International Orders. The customer is responsible for any custom, duty or import fees. This includes any VAT your country assess. It may look like VAT has already been collected, due to a misleading line Etsy adds to the cart, that I am not able to change. That line says "VAT included, when applicable". However, that only means if as a seller I was in the UK, then VAT would be collected. As I am not in the UK, you as a customer may be assessed a VAT fee in order to receive your parcel.
If an item is defective or incorrect we will replace or refund; simply contact us and we can discuss the option that works best for you.

If you would like to return an item because it wasn't what you needed, just email for an authorization before returning any item(s). We will not accept nor be responsible for returns that we did not authorize.

We do not accept returns of videos or DVDs, unless defective.

Returns of in-stock items in re-saleable condition will receive a refund of the purchase price (minus shipping and handling) if the return is made within thirty days of purchase.
