It is our pleasure to announce the launch of the new Elongon 2″ F (fine-sett) loom, available immediately!
Quick stats: Elongon 2″ F (fine-sett)
- Same weaving size as Elongon 2″ regular, you can use the same pattern ideas for both looms and/or use them together.
- 6.3 yards of fingering/sport weight yarn per hexagon.
- 5.5 wraps after the first continuous strand part of weaving.
WARNING!!! Use this loom at your own risk … weaving it is VERY addictive!
One of the hardest things for the Elongon fine-sett launch was to choose the project to introduce the loom …Our super-cute “Tangram Alpaca” won the race, but that only means that the others will follow.
Alpacas (and llamas, too!) are so cuddly cute, it’s hard to resist wanting to have one (or a herd). The gray alpaca is made of a mini skein of Scheepjes Metropolis Colour Pack sock yarn. Have a “real” alpaca, using alpaca yarn, like the white alpaca, made of natural, undyed alpaca Eco Puna from Amano. The Tangram Alpaca would also be an awesome project to use handspun alpaca yarn … or any 44 yards of pretty yarn that you have in your stash!
Our Tangram Alpaca is made of only six hexagons, plus one hexagon for a decorative “blanket”. While it is not true tangram, it makes a cozy pocket pet, or you can add a string to make an ornament.
