New Loom in the Studio
I bought a rigid heddle loom this week. It is a Leclerc Bergere, a 24 inch sturdy loom. I bought it so that I could weave scarves and shawls with my handspun, and also use up some of the commercial yarns I have on hand, that I don't want to use on the bigger floor looms, like this Alpaca yarn from Knit Picks.
I have had this yarn for awhile, and I have tried a couple of different projects, but have not been pleased with the results. This time however, I think is a winner. I have enough of this yarn to make several scarves, so stay tuned for different color combinations.
Until next time, Happy Spinning and Weaving, Tina
