Learn the basics of weaving with the Weaving Loom Kit. Follow along with my instruction booklet and learn how to weave by making a set of coasters.

This kit is designed with the beginner in mind. Each coaster project will teach a new set of skills. Learn how to create patterns or shapes in your weavings. The 2nd image shows each of the 4 coaster projects you will create with this kit.

Supplies include:
*Handmade loom made from sustainably sourced mahogany wood
*4 different colors of wool yarn - teal, yellow, white, grey
*2 yarn needles
*28 page full color instruction booklet

The instruction booklet also provides project ideas and tips for future weavings. The last image shows additional pattern ideas. The yarn is 100% U.S. produced wool and is very easy to use for beginner weavers.

Loom measures 10" x 13" (25cm x 33cm) with a weaving area of about 8.5" x 9" (20cm x 22cm). My looms are handmade by me and members of my family.

Post your finished weaving projects in the Sew Nina Flickr Group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/weavingprojects/ or on instagram with the tag #fiberhuisweavings.


2. How large of a design can I make?

The actual size of a finished piece of fabric will be about 8.5" x 9" (20cm x 22cm).


3. Can I make a blanket with this loom?

Weaving on a hand loom is a slow process which is why many weavers use the floor looms for projects as large as a blanket. You may feel discouraged if you find making a blanket very time consuming. If you are dedicated and have the patience, then by all means, you can certainly sew the pieces together to make any size project.


4. How do I join two pieces together?

When you have finished 2 pieces of fabric and tied it off the loom you can join them together with a whip stitch. Put the 2 pieces right sides (front sides) together. Using your weaving needle and a piece of matching yarn sew along the seam, from top to bottom, top to bottom, until you’ve sewn along the entire seam. You can also Google ‘whip stitch’ to find videos that show how to do this.


5. What types of yarn do you recommend for weaving?

When winding the warp it’s best to choose yarns without a lot of stretch. Cotton or linen yarns are usually stiff enough. This will prevent the project from warping when taken off of the loom. While doing the actual weaving the materials you choose are limitless. You can use any type of yarn out there or strips of fabric. You can also try unconventional materials such as raffia. I even saw a weaving once done with twigs for an art piece. I also sell all types of yarn and ribbons perfect for weaving or any fiber arts project. https://www.etsy.com/shop/fiberhuis


6. I'm allergic to wool. What type of yarns will come with the kit?

All yarns included in the kit are 100% wool. If you are allergic to wool please contact me and I will find you an allergy friendly alternative.


7. What if I don’t understand something in the instructions?

I am always willing to answer any questions you have about weaving anytime you need help. Feel free to convo or email me with any questions or if you just want to talk about weaving. :)
