Weaving 2022: Almost there with Kakaw Designs Backstrap Loom

As I suspected, the backstrap loom from Kakaw Designs has been much easier to work on than the one from Trama Textiles. I should say the warp has been easier…as the actual loom pieces have nothing to do with it. After a few hours, I’ve almost completed the warp that came on it. I’m looking forward to putting my own (wool) warp on the loom after I finish up this piece. I love the Ikat pattern on the yarn stripes in this warp, so I’ll probably dye some of my wool using this technique for a future warp.

  1. Looks like you are displaying it on the stair banister, is that where you wove too, I’m always curious what people secure them to to get the tension right. I have a friend who lives alone and uses a door handle but if you live with others a door handle would be trickier.
