I'll pay the shipping on all Knitters Looms.
The knitters loom is a simple, folding rigid heddle loom that comes to you assembled and lacquered and folds (with your weaving in progress) for easy transport. It includes everything you need to get weaving--just add yarn!
Rigid heddle weaving is the easy, natural choice for knitters and spinners. You can bust through your stash, and weave on the go. You can let the yarn do all the talking with plain weave (perfect showcase for textured and art yarns), or use a pattern stick to work complex patterns with this simple, easy-to-warp loom.
The knitters loom takes the intimidation out of weaving!
Follow the links at the bottom of the ashford description for pdf and video tutorials.
Each loom is available alone or with its bag as a combo (saving $18 - $50 over buying separately, depending on size). You can also buy the bag separately later ($53, $70, or $95).
The looms come with a 7.5dpi reed (a good all-purpose size, good for a dense bulky weave, or a more open weave in lighter yarns); or you can buy 2.5, 5, 10 or 12.5 dpi reeds to expand your range of projects. ($27.50 for 12"; $34 for 20"; or $42 for 28"). Stands are also available for all sizes ($125, $135, or $170, respectively). A double heddle kit ($33.50 all sizes) is also available if you want to get fancy!
I can order any accessories you like, and they'll ship free if you order with your loom. I don't have separate listings for every option, so convo me and I can send an invoice.
