This is a tapestry loom it's basically just a frame with two additional bars along the top and bottom it does NOT have notches cut out of it for the warp because you don't need that. Beginner loom kits are very popular and often look like a wooden frame with slits or notches cut out of the top and bottom. This is so the weaver gets a consistent warp set every time or "epi" (ends per inch)
this is great if you want to be weaving coarse wall hangings for ever but you can easily set your epi manually over your frame or bar or whatever if you want to start weaving today you can do it yourself! Should I share more about DIY weaving? What do you say #instigram #weaving #diy
Check out these little thrum bums!
I was shown this pattern by @whitebirch_handcraft and it instantly screamed - hey, use up all your little bits of yarn and thrums with this hat pattern. So I'm going to! These are the first two of possibly hundreds for years to come - but not really, I still have to conquer thrum mittens #thrums #hats #knittersofinstagram
