I’m very much an advocate for weaving on small rigid heddle looms. They’re portability makes it easy to access and weave on in just about any space.
I often take my 25cm with me when I have adventures in my van Betsy. It’s relatively easy to find spaces to warp her up as I travel.
Like a spindle verses a spinning wheel, a rigid Heddle may be slower to weave on than a floor loom, but it makes up for this with the ability to take it with you, to work on the go.
Slower by the meter, faster by the week.
I get told often, that the sampleit is really only good for weaving scarves, a common misconception. With a little imagination larger items can be woven including garments.
My friend Chris bought a 40cm Sampleit and stand from me a couple of years ago. Chris is an avid medieval re-enactor. She’s particularly interested in authentic garment construction.
Using a 10dpi reed and Lopi Einband Icelandic wool yarn. Chris wove and constructed an over dress. The dress was constructed with 3 panels woven on her 40cm Sampleit loom.
