Schacht Wolf Pup 810 Loom, 8 Shafts, 10 Treadles

The Schacht Wolf Pup 810 Loom

The Wolf Pup 810 Loom prototype will be debuting at Convergence in August of 2016. The Schacht Wolf Pup 810 Loom is a Wolf Pup / Baby Wolf hybrid! With 8 harnesses and 10 treadles and a weaving width of 18″, this compact loom weaves like the Baby Wolf with the size and portability of the Wolf Pup Loom.
I have been hoping that Schacht would make the Wolf Pup with 8 harnesses. It will be the perfect loom for taking to 4 or 8 shaft weaving workshops. I can’t wait to see it! I spoke to Jane Patrick at Schacht today. She told me that the Wolf Pup 810 Loom will look slightly different than the Baby Wolf Loom. The brake will be different and the legs will be somewhat different. The Wolf Pup 810 Loom is expected to start shipping in November or December of 2016. Contact us if you would like to reserve one. View it on our site here.

The Tensioning system is really clever. The wheel rests in self lubricating bearings. Like all of Schacht’s products it was very thoughtfully designed. I can hardly wait to receive mine!

Beautiful Potholders woven on the Potholder PRO Loom

potholder-kit-2-smI have been having fun weaving potholders on the NEW larger size Harrisville Potholder Pro Loom which is made entirely in the USA. It makes a potholder approx. 8.25 inches square and has nice thick cotton loops and every loop fits! I decided to see what I could come up with using a package of peacock, lime and plum loops.  View PotholderPro Kit-1
They have so many great colors to work with! I went on to weave 10 more potholders this time using 5 different colors. I am currently weaving Classic Size Potholders using the same 5 colors to complement my larger Autumn Colors potholders.

Three Sequined Scarf Patterns

Three Sequined Scarf Patterns by Lois Scarbrough

Pictured are 3 Sequined Scarves that I wove earlier this year. These fashionable sequined scarves were fast to warp up at 5 ends per inch and they wove up quickly. The sequins are plied right in with the yarn so there is no fuss weaving with them. The scarves look quite festive with the sequins and will make great gifts! I wove all three on my 10″ Schacht Cricket Loom using Alpine Meadow Yarns Sequined Novelty Boucle for the weft and Brown Sheep Yarns for the warp. Links to the free patterns follow: Glistening Berries Scarf Pattern, Razzamatazz Scarf Pattern, Bedazzled Scarf Pattern. Kits are available.

If you’re accustomed to thinking of the rigid heddle loom as a placemat loom, be prepared. In this 2-disc set, you’ll see how to use it for all kinds of fabrics—from sturdy little rugs to sheer shawls, from simple plain weaves to complex finger manipulations to doubleweave and beyond.
