Holiday Weaving Inspiration

We’re gearing up for the holiday season and have handmade gifting on our minds. In today’s post, we’ll share some of our favorite weaving patterns for gift projects, many of which are available for free! 

Colorful towels using our Organic Cotton will certainly be a welcome gift, as pretty as they are practical:

Here’s a shot of Dave with the Warping Mill in action from last month’s SOAR event.

Finally, don’t forget yourself this holiday season: our new Warping Mill makes a great gift! Eliminate shoulder strain from the warping process with this easy-to-use mill allowing you to create a warp that is approximately 18 yards in length.

The horizontal cross members that hold your cross can be re-positioned on any quarter of the mill. The pegs that hold the cross are attached to the cross members with wing nuts which ensure that your pegs will never wiggle loose. To remove the warp from the mill all you have to do is undo the wing nut on your last peg and the peg will slip free. It also folds flat for easy storage.  

With its strong stable base and smooth action,  you will love making all your warps with our new Warping Mill, which is available at your nearest Louet Retailer or via our online store

Make sure Santa knows it’s on your wishlist!
