Portable Scarf loom for hand weaving scarves.
I formerly sold dozens of these through our shop Create with Fibre:
DESCRIPTION AND USPs
Probably the world's first 2-piece wooden scarf loom for sale to the general public!
Weave a scarf approx 5" (13cm) wide by up to 5 feet (1.5 metres) long.
Easy to use - suitable for various ages and abilities.
Made from FSC approved pine or recycled wood.
Assembled in seconds with no tools required.
Fits in the smallest of car boots; easily carried on a bus or train.
Dismantled size (as sent in the post) is approx 80cm long x 18cm wide x 5cm deep.
These looms are great fun especially as you can achieve a finished article very quickly – I can finish one in 2 hours. They make an ideal gift for almost anyone. We have found that children and people with some disabilities can manage to weave a scarf themselves or with minimal help.
No technical know-how needed. Simply wind yarn (the warp) around the pins in a zig-zag fashion from end to end. Next, weave yarn (the weft) under and over the warp. Tie the ends to make a fringe and pop the whole thing off the pins – hey presto! – you have a scarf!!
We’ve been making simple looms and teaching weaving since 1995. This portable scarf loom is a development from our original standard scarf looms too, but as they cannot be posted Royal Mail (too long and vulnerable), they are only available for collection.
WHAT IS INCLUDED?
Supplied with instructions, special scarf loom weaving needle (flat plastic & not sharp), plus a beating comb.
Can be used with any fancy yarns and if you pick up odds and ends from charity shops, would cost very little to make your own scarf.
MAKE MONEY OR SAVE MONEY!
Potential to weave attractive scarves and sell them in craft or clothes shops and stalls. Make cost-effective and unique gifts for family and friends. We have been weaving scarves ourselves for several years now and been selling them for a profit in various shops. You could do it too!
We now use the Courier firm My Hermes. Lets assume you order on a Monday and we contact My Hermes on the same day; they will collect on the Tuesday and deliver typically (but not guaranteed) 3-5 days later, so you might expect your parcel on the Friday. If this sort of timing does not suit you (it could take even longer) for example if the loom is for someone's imminent birthday, then please contact us before buying and we can discuss other (but more expensive) arrangements. We could for example use Parcelforce 48 so do a Buy it now and request an invoice. We will then add an additional £6 to cover the extra cost.
I will post anywhere in the UK but need to charge an extra £2 for the areas that delivery companies class as 'remote'. Please amend your postage and total in PayPal.
Please take all this into consideration when purchasing and when leaving feedback. Thank you.
If you think like some people say to us, "I'll just get hubby/partner to make me one", bear in mind that you can't just 'bash a load of nails in a piece of any old wood'! If you do, you will always split the wood. We use a drill stand and pre-drill 300 holes per loom. Then we use a special type of panel pin that is shaped perfectly for this job and wont snag your yarn. Then, if you want a portable, quick assembly loom, you would have to come up with your own design as you are not allowed to copy mine! What we're trying to say is, that it is a bigger and trickier job than you might think. So, before you fall out with your partner or have a go yourself, why not just buy one from us, now that you have our ready-made solution in front of you!
UNIQUE and BRITISH MADE
I make a few of these at a time in my workshop in Ayrshire, South West Scotland. I do not use any other retailers but also sell them at occasional craft fairs, through word of mouth and at Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers meetings.
The design of this scarf loom, particularly the two parts and their means of tool-free assembly is registered as an Intellectual Asset of Create with Fibre and must not be copied.
