Peg Looms are so simple to use that anyone can create beautiful and useful woven items. You can achieve amazing results using familiar and unusual materials: yarns, unspun fleece, new and recycled fabrics…even plastic bags and old hosiery.
You can create rugs, doormats, wall hangings, scarves, handbags & tote-bags, belts, cushion covers, chair pads, baskets, and more.
Weaving Sticks are the hand-held version of a Peg Loom.
You can weave on as few as two sticks or on as many as you can hold in your hand. It’s a very portable craft and takes minimal dexterity.
One long woven strip can be used as a scarf or belt. Or you can sew the woven strips together in various ways to create rugs, wall hangings, chair pads, baskets, and more.
Great for Up-Cycling
Peg Looms and Weaving Sticks are great for up-cycling. Use oddments of wool, leftover fabric scraps, strips cut from unwanted clothing, unspun fleece, plastic bags – almost anything. Only the bounds of your imagination can limit you!
Great for Kids
Children love to weave with Peg Looms and Weaving Sticks. With very little guidance and supervision, wee ones can create the most amazing weavings. It’s an easy craft with no sharp objects or small parts involved.
