Learn to Weave with a Kit

Are you interested in learning to weave, but not quite sure where to begin? If you’ve never made a woven wall hanging before, you may be overwhelmed trying to figure out what supplies and tools you’ll need to buy.

The kits I’ve listed below are specifically designed with beginners in mind: they include easy-to-understand instructions and all of the required materials you’ll need to complete your very first weaving.

What to Look for in a Weaving Kit

Weaving kits are a bit of an investment — so you’ll want to make sure you choose a high-quality kit. A good weaving kit will include all the materials necessary to complete a finished project. Some include instructional booklets, some will include video tutorials or links to video classes.

At a minimum, a kit will have:

  • A high-quality loom.
  • Weaving tools, like a heddle, weaving needles, or a comb
  • A variety of yarn in sufficient quantity to finish the project
  • Easy to follow guide with clear instructions. Tutorial videos are a nice bonus!

Some kits may include extra items, like scissors or a project tote bag.

Sure, were you thinking about getting a rigid heddle loom, then? I know that the Ashford Rigid Heddle Loom has a stand. I don't have it myself but it has good reviews.

Or, if you were thinking about a simple table loom, this one looks highly rated. (affiliate links)
