Our weaving tools have been designed to pair perfectly with our frame looms or to add to your collection of handy tools for tapestry or hand-weaving on your table or floor looms.
Each solid beech or pastel-coloured tool has been carefully designed to work with the dimensions and spacing of our frame looms, which are set out at 2, 4, 8 and 16 EPI. They are wonderful to handle, easy to use, frictionless, long–lasting and the Rainbow tools were designed specifically in response to Covid-19 so that they can be washed to keep them clean. Each tool also has a circular opening so you can store your tools neatly for safe-keeping using a handy clasp-ring.
