You, too, can weave a dream. A dream scarf. The scarf of your dreams.
And we can help! Our awesome new teacher Linda will show you how to use a rigid heddle loom (we sell Crickets at the shop!) to weave a worsted weight scarf. Once you see how fast weaving is, you might never go back!

Learn a new way to use all those wonderful yarns – weaving on a rigid heddle loom is easy, portable, fun, and provides hours of relaxing fiber art time. Let your creativity flow as you design and weave a scarf with worsted weight yarn. Unlimited yarn, color, and pattern variations are possible on this simple loom. No previous weaving experience is necessary; beginners have great success with this first project. Come to Twisted and get hooked on weaving.
