Limited number of Louet Ericas on sale

Suitcase packed? Check. Dog’s in the cattery? Check. Mail’s on hold? Check. Floor loom packed into the station wagon? No?! You’re going on vacation without a loom and you call yourself a weaver?

Maybe you’ve overlooked the Louet Erica, the mightiest little table loom that fits right in your luggage? This ain’t no beginner’s loom and there has never been a better time to buy a Louet Erica 30 (2 shaft) or a Louet Erica 50 (4 shaft) as we have a very limited number in stock and on sale.

Pocket looms

Can’t tempt you with a Louet Erica loom? Why not try something from our small loom range? From the Schacht Zoom Loom through the Purl & Loop Stash Blaster down to the Purl & Loop Wee Weaver – you don’t need to pick up that iPad.

Pucker up scarves!

Looking for a summer project to complete in time for fall? Look no further than these pucker up scarves. They’re a great introduction to simple collapse weave. Each kit provides enough silk and merino to create two stunning scarves with finished dimensions of 12″ x 75″ plus fringe. All you need is a simple 4-shaft loom, a 10 dent reed and a weaving width of 18″.

Available in these colourways: MochachinoAutumn EquinoxSalish SeaUnder the Sea and Ha Cha Cha.

3-2-1-blast off!!!

Yeah, you could buy Organic 3/2 Cotton in 3 1/2 pound cones, but why risk putting your back out? Organic 3/2 Cotton in 1 lb cones are now available instead.

Exclusive, very limited edition silk colours

We’ve been experimenting with lovely gradient pastel colourways.

There’s only a handful of sets available, therefore stocks are limited.
