Stoorstålka Band Weaving Kit Basic

A complete kit for anyone who wants to try back strap band weaving and is perfect for a beginner.

This is a very simple form of weaving where the warp is attached to a belt that is wrapped around your body. The warp yarn is already threaded through the heddle and you tie it onto an object that doesn't move, such as a table leg. 

It is a traditional form of weaving and is easy to take anywhere with you.

The kit is available in 3 warp colours: grey-red-blue; red-green; white-black.


The following is included in the kit:
Band recipe
Heddle Small, already warped with Áhkko weaving yarn
Gehpa (shuttle) with yarn
Bandlock
Cotton band that you tie around your waist
Lacing to attach the warp to a steady object

Warp length: 1.5 meter (makes approx 1 meter finished band)
NOTE: The color of the heddle itself can vary with what we have in stock for the moment. Currently the heddles are white.
