If you saw my post on Looms for Beginners, you know I’ve appreciated the lap looms from The Unusual Pear for a while now. Well, recently I teamed up with Rainie from The Unusual Pear to help put pictures to her beginner’s instructions (more on that later), and Rainie was kind enough to gift me a mini loom! I was super excited because this loom has been in my shopping cart for a while now, but beautiful fibers seem to have been taking priority #1, you know how it is ~wink.
Even before using this loom, it was one of my recommended because it is made as one solid piece, so there is no worries about the loom becoming loose as you use it over time. In person, this loom is just as good as I imagined. It is super easy to warp up and work on. And for me the mini size is perfect! It is a little bigger then 6” x 8”. My frame loom and my notched loom are both on the larger size, so this is nice to have a smaller loom to work on that fits perfectly on my lap. This loom can even fit in a purse! But on second thought, with my littles always pulling stuff out of my purse and sometimes sitting or jumping on it (<-glamorous I know), I might only put the loom in my purse if I knew I would only be handling it.
There are two more sizes larger of this loom also, if you’re looking for something bigger. And the price is great for entry level weaving.
What was your first loom? Do you still use it or have you moved on? I would love to hear about your loom or any wishlist worthy items you have come across.
You can view other items that are on my wishlist here:
- Patons Wool Roving
- Tapestry Needles from Have Company
- Hand Dyed & Hand Spun Yarn from Serene Fiber Arts
As mentioned previously, I received the mini bamboo loom as a gift from The Unusual Pear. All opinions are my own and I only accept and recommend products that I personally like and use.For more fun, follow me here ->
