Owl Backstrap Heddle or complete Kit

PriceFrom $29.99

These cute backstrap looms are the too cute not to want to weave up a new band on.  This listing is for the loom only in the specified patterns available.  It comes with a poly finish and is ready to use with your favorite backstrap pattern.  


This heddle is approx 9.25x7 inches and is 1/4" thick.  

 

Choose just the heddle w/shuttle or choose the kit.  

The kit comes with the following:
1 - adjustable backstrap
1 - Band Lock
1 - heddle - 1/4" thick solid wood
1 - Sami sword shuttle 
1 - rug shuttle
1-Weaving Needle
1 - back beam
2- warp sticks
1 - draw string carry bag

In the set I've included everything except the tie cord for the back beam, you can use a shoe lace, ribbon or just some yarn for this. 

I have not included on how to weave but have included instructions on how to warp your new loom. You can find a wealth of information on band weaving, Sami weaving and backstrap weaving on YouTube. The instructions are digital and will be a sent to your email address once you've made your purchase.

Books I recommend are:
Norwegian Pick-Up Bandweaving by Heather Torgenrud
Susan Faulker has a few really great books you can get them as digital versions rather inexpensively as well as the hard covers. Her blog is here https://durhamweaver64.blogspot.com/ and she is another great source for pattern weaving.
The Durham Weaver is a great source for band weaving. This video demonstrates the double hole heddle. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qynTGaBZycw&fbclid=IwAR3NoiDZoAtIcfrlpjO3TfOlZIJKuasxjBI6kokFAHMYwFj1a6R7yt2DQm4
