The Swatch-Maker® 8.0 mini weaving (coaster size) loom has 8 slots per inch for the warp. This lightweight birch loom is made of ¼ in. birch wood. The loom measures approximately 6 in. x 7 ½ in. with a work area of 5 in. x 6 ¼ in. which is the maximum size that can be woven on this loom.
The Swatch Maker 8.0 Birch loom comes with color photo instructions, wood tapestry needle, small metal tapestry needle for the smaller and tighter areas of the project and a reusable cotton carrying bag. This is a great way to weave swatches or to use up your yarn, ribbon or fabric stash. Check out loom stands for storing your loom or displaying your work in progress.
• Warp requires approx. 17 yards of any weight or thickness (as long as it fits in the grooves) yarn, string, fabric strip or ribbon. This amount takes into consideration wrapping the warp entirely around the front and back around every slot.
• Weft requires about 14 yards of worsted weight yarn. Weft requirements will change with different weights or types of yarn.
• Weft requirements will vary depending on the width and/or thickness of material used.
The materials for these looms are sourced in Houston, Texas and the looms are handmade in Purl and Loop’s Houston studio.
