Snickeri loom: aa070706

My New Loom

After much waiting, searching, and deciding I have just purchased a new loom to add to my collection. This one is an 8 shaft countermarche made by Snickeri Looms of Sweden.I chose this one because it fits much more comfortably into my smallish flat in London. The loom is very similar to a Glimakra but has a smaller footprint. It is 1 metre wide and about 50 inches deep. It comes with an adjustable padded bench and you can also purchase an optional warping board that conveniently attaches to the back of the loom.

It’s wonderful to be weaving again!

You may be wondering what my first warp is…

I’m weaving some silk/hemp blend shawls for a commission – a bit boring, I know, but I’m still enjoying being back in touch with a loom.

When I’m not weaving, I’m sitting out on my patio, enjoying the view of the Thames and the Woolwich ferry.
