Weavers at work on a set of scarves for winter.
This is a well-crafted heddle loom for children, small and sturdy. The heddle lifts or lowers every other piece of yarn throughout the whole weaving, when pulled up or down with every other row, so no "over-under" calculations make for some really speedy weaving.
The bar nearest Madeleine winds the finished weaving in a roll, while the bar furthest away holds the rest of the warp, wound carefully and ready to be woven. It's an impressive little system! I like that the loom comes threaded, so the weavers can start without the hard part of learning to set it all up.
I need to learn to do the set up on my own, now that we've finished that project.
