Chetnanigans improves on the first product that we ever launched, and the new Loom is terrific! The "FA" originally stood for "first anniversary" but I say it stands for "flipping awesome" -- and let me tell you, it is! Crazily enough, the weight of this new design is about the same as our original all-wood loom, but due to the new weight distribution, it feels lighter in your hands! Once you get started, this loom flies in your fingers! When I can do a strip with 300 loops a side in less than two hours, that's fast!

I love my original Chetnanigans red oak loom (still available). It was literally our first product, and helped us launch Chetnanigans to our Etsy customers. But honestly, it simply can't compare to the New FA Version! Another thing I love about this new loom is (in comparison to our original) the FA is more stable and consistent throughout the lace-making process. One change that we made was to "trim up" the bar width by 1/4", making the bars on the new FA, more streamlined than the original, and easier to manage.
Due to the consistency of the rod widths, there's no need for grommets. Fluctuations in humidity will now only affect the red oak bars and not the rods! These aluminum rods will not swell on those sticky, hot summer days or shrink and loosen in the dry air of winter! There will still be some weather related fluctuation in the bars, but as they are smaller, I believe it will be infinitely more manageable!

Finally, another terrific feature of this loom the ability to utilize nearly the entire 15" length of the rods -- as the bars will remain firmly in place at the end of the rods, your loom can literally be pushed to its furthest limits -- and there was no slippage for me while making a 70" HPL scarf.

As always, this product is made in our little shop in Midlothian, Virginia, and we hope that you like your new FA as much as I do... Sean is not getting his sample back!
