 New feature on this loom is the hand hole on body of loom for carrying the loom place to place.

This tabletop is able to make longer straps for those larger projects. Of course you can make shorter straps as well by using fewer pegs. The larger inkle is a good Inkle loom to use and there are fewer stops to advance the completed sections of strap around the tension bar. It is finished with natural oils such as boiled linseed which brings out the beauty of the wood grains, and very rustic looking. It is made of 3/4″ thick Cabinet grade plywood-veneered on both sides using hardwoods, the sort of stuff used in building doors, cabinets, and drawers. The pegs are 1/2″ rounds with almost 4 ” of weaving space and the extension/tension bar is of wood also.

This light/medium duty loom is about 13 inches tall, 31 inches long, including tension bar length, and  4″ wide.. It is a great way to learn how to inkle weave as it is all set up to show how everything should go. Some of my looms have a different base, depending on materials onhand but all have a similar look as the ones shown in photos.

Warps are about 13-17 feet long (depending on yarn/cords used).

It comes with instructions, 70+ ideas for use of completed straps, as well as a shuttle/shed beaters, extra heddle string, yarn, and the best part is it’s ready to use with project all set up and complete with heddles in place. The pattern shown here is of red-white-black banner design (single cable pattern)…great for pet collars or leashes, guitar straps or straps can be sewn together to create useful bags and pouches, makes great trims for sewing on about anything or even create items of clothing, etc.  Will add the instructions for warping this pattern as well as several others. The heddle maker pegs are marked as such for making more heddles at a later date.
