Learn Inkle Weaving

Inkle looms produce warp-faced bands in which the warp completely covers the weft. It is quite simple but also a very interesting and unique little loom. Inkle loom weaving is a great way to start weaving as a beginner.

Learn different weaving techniques on an inkle loom and create your own colourful and useful braids, such as belts, bracelets, guitar straps, ties, shoelaces, and many more. Stitch these braids together and you can make bigger pieces like bags, placemats, and cushion covers.
