This Swatch Maker 8.0 Maple mini weaving looms were created to complement the Swatch Maker 3-in-1 weaving loom. For those preferring to make swatches using prongs versus threading holes, these looms are for you. The Swatch Maker 8.0, has 8 ends per inch (E.P.I.). The Maple looms are made of native Texas Maple. Each loom by itself weighs approximately 4 oz and has dimensions of 6″ x 7 1/2″ with a work area of 5″ x 6 1/4″. The loom comes with color photo instructions, acrylic tapestry needle, a small metal tapestry needle for the smaller and tighter areas of the project, a threading needle for dealing with any loose tails and a reusable cotton bag. You will need yarn, scissors and a fork or for aligning weft.
The weaving comb is available separately for beating your weft into place.
8 E.P.I.: 40 yd (30 yd warp; 10 yd weft)
Acrylic material is sourced from a woman owned Houston business and looms are laser cut and assembled in the Purl & Loop Houston studio. All loom packaging components (needles, cotton bag, instructions, etc.) are sourced from U.S. businesses.
