Back in the shop is the Rigid 16" Sample It Loom. Whether you are learning to weave for the first time, want to learn new techniques or sample your wonderful yarns, this loom is fun and easy to use. Just add yarn! The 40cm (16") weaving width allows you to sample all your favourite rigid heddle patterns, textures and colours. I have the 15DPI reed in stock and will be warping this loom soon to show how easy it is to create beautiful woven fabric.

New Silk & Merino Fibres from Ashford are in the Studio and waiting to be spun or felted.  They are beautiful. $30.00 for 100g bag or 25g for $6.00.

Avocado, Flamingo, Citrus, Berries and Skyscape and I Just love Sunset for felting and making those wonderfully soft nuno scarfs.
