Right from the start we set out to make our looms the best. We looked at other peg looms (mostly Pine) on the market which tend to have only 1 or maybe 2 rows and often 1 peg size which limits you weaving options. 3 row British hardwood peglooms are our trademark.
Our looms are totally versatile and you as the weaver may use anything from a DK or less right up to prepared or raw fleece (or even other materials).
Total number of pegs with this loom 38.
23x 6mm nylon and 15 x 9mm wooden.
Row 1 – 23 x 6mm peg holes at 12.5mm centres – from about a DK, finer wool
Row 2 – 15 x 9mm peg holes at 19mm centres – medium to chunky wool, fine – medium fleece
Row 3 – 11 x 9mm peg holes at 25mm centres – thicker fleece
Row 4 – x 6mm peg holes at 12.5mm centres – from about a DK, finer wool
