FAQs

You can download the instructions from my website www.theunusualpear.com under the "learn to weave" tab of the menu. There, you will find written instructions, videos and photographs to help you get started!

The size of the loom you order is really just a matter of personal preference. You can choose to warp and weave the whole width of the loom, maximising your weaving area or you may choose to only warp and weave a section of the loom to create a smaller piece. You can add tassels to create longer lengths to your pieces. The best value for money is my Big Mama Loom as it is the biggest in my range.

Warp is the lengthwise threads of the weaving and the foundation for your woven piece. You want to use a strong thread that will not break. The most common type of warp is cotton. I have a great natural cotton warp in my shop which is strong and perfect for warping. It's 200g so it will get you through a ton of weavings before you would need to order more! You can use all sorts of thread for warping and any colour you like to create interest in your piece.

The wonderful thing about weaving is that you can use almost anything as your weft (the crosswise threads of the weaving). The yarn that I sell in my shop are hand dyed and/or hand spun Australian wool yarns. I choose to include Australian made wool yarns because I believe in supporting local businesses and I also know and understand the impacts that some other yarns have on the environment (nylon, acrylic etc). These are the conclusions that I have personally made, you may use whatever materials you have available to you :)

    I am in love with this loom. So easy to buy, quickly shipped and everything as described. Crazy easy to use. Wish I could take it with me everything. The service and support is no surprise when it’s coming from a talented weaver and teacher of weaving classes. If you want want of these looms, this has to be the place you get it. Did I mention, IN LOVE.
