Speed up your swatching with these adorably sized Swatch Maker Loom accessories. Included in the set are a weaving comb, pick-up stick, and wee stick shuttle.
Stick Shuttle – Using a shuttle keeps your weft yarn tidy while weaving and makes it easier to pass the weft yarn back and forth through the shed. Made by Purl & Loop from birch wood, the shuttle measures 5 ½” long and ¾” wide, and it is engraved with the Yarnworker logo.
Pick-Up Stick – Beveled on each end to make it easy to pick up your warp yarns, a pick-up stick quickly becomes an invaluable weaving tool. By tipping a stick shuttle on its edge, you can create a taller space for the shuttle to pass through, and by using the flat edge you can press the weft evenly into place. This particular beauty, is handmade from various lightweight woods by Gilbert Apps, one of Liz’s weaving students and a fine rug weaver in his own right. It measures about 7 ¾” long from tip to tip, ½” high, and 1/8” wide.
Weaving Comb – Combs are useful for placing your weft yarn, particularly those last few rows. Made by Purl & Loop from birch wood, measures 3” x 1½” with 5 prongs per inch, and it is engraved with the Yarnworker logo.
Included with each bundle is a cotton carrying bag stamped with the Yarnworker logo.
