Children will soon discover the fun of making everything from dollhouse carpets to pencil cases on this simple peg loom. A great and affordable way for kids (and adults) to discover the excitement of real weaving, the hardwood loom's unbreakable plastic pegs are slanted to keep weaving from falling off. Winner of the Teachers' Choice Award and the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal "Best Toy" award, the loom comes with brightly colored, 100% pure wool yarns, cotton warp string, a plastic weaving needle, and illustrated instructions to get young weavers off to a good start. All Harrisville Designs products are made in Harrisville, New Hampshire. Founded in 1971 as an effort to preserve as well as help re-establish the economic vitality of this historic 18th century textile village (now recognized as the only textile village of that era in America that survives in its original form), this small family-owned-and-operated business is guided by a firm belief that quality should not be compromised even for the smallest product.

I (an adult) purchased this loom for myself to begin to learn the basics of weaving. I found it to be very helpful for my first few weavings, and a fun tool for a quick weave. It is very small, so one shouldn't expect much of a masterpiece - however it is great for learning the basics, trying out new techniques, and I'm sure it could keep a child entertained very well :)
Great craft for the car

My son, age 9, wanted to weave but not with potholder loops. I got him this loom and strung the warp for him before leaving on a road trip. The colors that are included are perfect for a boy, and I love the quality wool yarn. Everything fit in the box and by the end of the trip he had a complete piece. By folding it in half and whipstitching the three sides he was able to complete a potholder. I've given him my extra wool yarn so he can make more. Unlike a potholder loom, parents might need to help with starting and finishing.
perfect for first time weaving
