No more rumors, it’s here! The new TURTLE Loom™ “fine sett” expands the list of yarns that you can use to weave hexagons. Grab your sock yarn!
Without changes to the weaving method the TURTLE Loom™ “fine sett” is designed for yarn weight 1 – 2, enabling you to create a light fabric with fingering, baby, or sport yarns.
Finally a great way to have fun with a purpose and put precious sock yarn stash to good use!
