Small Backstrap Kit


Choose from Walnut, Cherry or Maple solid wood for your heddle. 
When adding to your cart choose the design you'd like engraved onto your heddle abd choose the pattern you'd like.   This kit comes with the heddle you see in the images with the dragonfly engraved onto it.  The plain one is an option but only comes in a standard single hole 8epi pattern at this time.  

Your new Backstrap kit includes 
1 - adjustable backstrap
1 - Band Lock
1 - heddle - 1/4" thick solid wood, approx 9x9.5" (6 oz)
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.
