I recently completed a peg loom weaving. I bought this loom so that I could make rugs with the seconds from my alpaca fiber and from coarser wool fleeces that I have purchased over the past few years. The weaving I completed in these pictures is not for a rug, but for a wall hanging in my workshop.
In the picture above, I am using a wool yarn for the warp of the loom. Since this part is not seen, you could use any color. For my future rugs, I will be using a thick cotton warp or a nice rugged hemp.
In this picture I am starting the first part of the weave. I was amazed at how quickly this part goes. Luckily I had a basket of hand spun that I could grab from. The entire piece was woven from my chunky yarn and because I was weaving around the pegs, I could use super chunky yarn without worrying about the thickness.
Look at all of lumps and bumps! What I love most about weaving with this loom is that I do not lose the texture of my yarn! I cannot describe how squishy, yet solidly secure this piece is! Okay, that was 3 exclamatory statements in a row.......that should show you how much I love how this turned out. :)
The final piece is a bit over 24" wide and 30" long.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a fabulous weekend.
