All about this Craft Kit

This complete weaving kit puts all the tools and materials you need at your fingertips, ready to be turned into a one of a kind woven wall hanging. 100% wool yarns and tops combine to create gorgeous colour combinations and tactile textures, and the detailed instructions will teach you a variety of simple hand weaving techniques to get you started in this wonderful craft.

  • Designer Stephanie has sought high and low for the best quality wools and yarns, picking those perfect for hand weaving. 
  • The unique pop-up loom is made in the UK from high quality birch plywood. Snap apart the section, slot together and start weaving!
  • Use the smooth but tough cotton yarn to warp your loom before you get started weaving. 
  • Comes with two shuttles and a tapestry needle giving you a variety of ways to weave depending on which you prefer.
  • Use the comb to push down the rows and help make your weaving nice and neat.
  • Flick through the ‘Guide to Weaving’ to learn how to get started, different techniques you can use and how to finish and hang your weave.
  • Take inspiration from the full colour pattern guide or get creative with your own unique designs.
  • The loom is lightweight enough to work on your lap - perfect for cosy evenings in!
  • The ideal gift for a creative friend looking for a new craft to try.
