Something New...

We started working on the 4-harness floor loom shortly after I was able to understand the basic weaving techniques. This is the type of loom a person would typically think of when they hear the word 'weaving'. Using an array of foot pedals and other various mechanics, the floor loom is basically a glorified frame loom, but much faster to weave on. We have started a simple scarf to get the hang of the new loom. Setting up, or as weavers call it, dressing the loom, can take up to 2 hours attaching the warp-almost as long as it will take to weave the entire scarf.
