Small Backstrap w/shuttle or Kit

Small Backstrap w/shuttle or Kit


Miniture version of the large 13 pattern backstrap made in beautiful Walnut and is 5.75" x 5.5" and weights less than 2 oz.  (this listing is for the walnut heddle not the cherry heddle you see in the pictures.)


Choose to add the heddle and shuttle only or add the whole kit.

Your new Backstrap kit includes 
1 - adjustable backstrap
1 - Band Lock
1 - heddle - 1/4" thick solid walnut wood
1 - Sami sword shuttle 
1 - warp comb
1 - back beam
2- warp sticks
1 -  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.
Here is a great beginners article.

Books I recommend are:
Norwegian Pick-Up Bandweaving by Heather Torgenrud
Susan Faulker Weaver 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 and she is another great source for pattern weaving.
