Weaving Looms

The Woolgatherers provides 2-3 hours complimentary instruction with every loom purchase. In the case of the small looms, this is enough to provide instructions for warping, the first simple warp, and time to weave a small sample. It is our intent to be certain that you enjoy your weaving tools and understand how to use them well. Telephone support also available. The countermarche looms come wtih a CD covering assembly, tieup and warping.

This information is available separately - $30 plus $4 shipping and handling = $34. Please specify if needed for Ulla Cyrus(pivoting or floating lams) or Lilla model.
