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
