The Inkle Loom is great for weaving belts and bands.

Inkle looms are great for start-up weaving programs because they require little additional equipment, are easy to use and understand, and are easily stored.

Our Inkle loom is built with years of heavy use in mind. It has one open side for ease of warping. The tension bar has an easy grip knob for adjusting the warp tension during weaving. Warps can be up to 4.5″ wide and 8.5′ long.

Loom is made of hard maple and left unfinished.  Dimensions 7" x 9 1/2" x 31"

Belt Shuttle has one beveled edge which is great for both holding yarn and for beating the weft.  Need one for each different color you wish to weave.
