An interesting question came up on the Facebook Pin Loom Weaving Support Group in response to yesterday’s post about using cotton yarn on the pin loom. Is there a way to add a little bulk, so as not to have a too-open weave, and still make weaving with cotton easier?

We also had a request for a demo using two colors and plain weave on the Zoom Loom. As many of you know, I don’t like the Zoom Loom—that extra wide frame (inner and outer edges) gets in my way and cramps my weaving style. So at great personal sacrifice of comfort (hee hee) I will demonstrate on the Zoom Loom:

  • How to use two different thicknesses of cotton
  • How to use two colors of yarn
  • How to use two different warping set-ups
