Yarnworker Swatch Maker Looms
The Swatch Maker 8.0, 10.0 and 12.0 mini weaving looms were created to complement the Swatch Maker 3-in-1 weaving loom. For those preferring to make swatches using prongs versus threading holes, these looms are for you. The Swatch Maker 8.0, 10.0 and 12.0 have 8 ends per inch (E.P.I.), 10 E.P.I and 12 E.P.I. respectively. The looms are now available in a creamy translucent acrylic or in Baltic birch. The acrylic has a matte finish on the front and a glossy finish on the back. Each loom by itself weighs approximately 4 oz and has dimensions of 6" x 7 1/2" with a work area of 5" x 6 1/4". The loom comes with color photo instructions, birch/acrylic tapestry needle, a small metal tapestry needle for the smaller and tighter areas of the project and a cotton carrying bag. You will need yarn, scissors and a fork or weaving comb for aligning weft. Birch Swatch Maker looms are available with the Yarnworker logo or plain. The acrylic looms are not available with a logo because the logo cannot be seen on that creamy translucent color.
