Weaver's Gift Guide | The Weaving LoomThe holidays are upon us and if you’re like me, you have relatives asking what you might want.  I put together a gift guide based off items I have and items that are on my own list, but all items are ones I highly recommend.

1| Bare Bulky Yarn – This yarn is ready to be dyed, so if you have a fiber lover in mind that wants to try dying yarn, this is the perfect gift!  And you don’t even have to buy special dyes to do it, you can also dye with natural ingredients or even kool-aid.  I haven’t tried dyeing yarn yet, but this is definitely on my list of things to do.

2| Tapestry Beater – I have one of these, and they aren’t necessary, but they sure are lovely to work with.  I just love using wooden tools when weaving.  This is a fun gift to give to the weaver in your life.

3| Wooden Tapestry Needle – I absolutely love this tapestry needle.  It is perfect for weaving large areas and it’s so lovely!

4| Wire Yarn Storage Basket – How cute is this basket?  This is a really fun way to store yarn for a certain project instead of in a tote, like I normally do.  Definitely on my list.

5| Clover Pom Pom Maker – A Pom Pom maker!!! I really want this and put it at the top of my list.  Pom Poms are so fun and this makes it even easier to make them.

6| The Unusual Pear Round and Mini Looms – Of course I’m a big fan of The Unusual Pear Looms, they are just so affordable and perfect for a lap.  I purchased the large round loom, but haven’t yet woven on it, I know I need to do that soon.  I will definitely be sharing pictures and such once I start.  This is the perfect gift for a weaver, even if they already have a loom, because the mini loom can be used to make things on the go or anywhere really.  And of course the round loom would be really fun for a weaver to use.  Also, I’m pretty sure you can’t have too many looms.

7| Hand dyed and Hand spun Yarns – Hand dyed and hand spun yarns are really the best.  They make my weaves 100% better because when you use quality materials that have a texture and interesting color on their own, putting them in a weave increases the weave’s texture and color.  I especially love these weaver packs from Serene Fiber Arts, they are perfect for boosting a yarn stash with color and texture.  I have a lot of fibers from this store on my gift ideas list I gave to my family (which they probably don’t get my fiber obsession, but that’s why I have fiber friends!)

The Weaving Loom Shop on EtsyOh and if you already follow me on Instagram, then you probably hear, but I’m so excited to announce that I FINALLY opened an Etsy shop where you can purchase a wall hanging!!  I have really large piles of finished weaves that my husband was probably getting sick of, haha.  Plus why not send the weaves out into the world for others to enjoy!

Do you have any items on your weaver’s list that maybe I’ve missed?  I love to hear about new and helpful items.

Happy Weaving!

Kate

    Thanks!
