Weaving Equipment

Learning to weave can be quite confusing if you don't have the right tools to work with. In this section of this free tutorial, you will learn all of the necessary equipment you need to succeed with the weaving process. It's always hard for new weavers to know how to set priorities for what to buy, especially since weaving equipment can be expensive. So what do you really need? Everyone knows you need a loom, but there are many other accessories to consider as well. You'll want to have at least 100 heddles on each shaft, the wider the warp and the finer the threads, the more heddles you will need. Each loom comes with a reed, but when doing different weaving techniques, you will need different reed sizes.  Some of the other equipment needed to do various types of weaving projects are a warping board, lease sticks, bobbins and the list goes on.

Learn weaving terms while you learn to weave

Weaving Dictionary

One of the biggest obstacles to learning how to weave is its terminology. Not only are most weaving terms ordinary words that mean something else, but different sources use the same words for different things, or different words for the same things. It can be confusing to say the least. To make matters worse, weaving terms can usually only be understood in relation to other weaving terms, so to know one, you really have to know them all. To help clarify this muddle, the tutorial covers the most important weaving terms all weavers should understand. Download this free eBook today and begin learning crucial terms.


If you're just learning, start with an overview of the equipment needed, and the descriptive weaving terms section. Once you understand the language of weaving, you're prepared to learn how to warp a loom and will love the section dedicated to instruction on both front to back and back to front techniques. Once you're a ready to start the weaving process, skip ahead to the free projects section and enjoy making fulled wool scarves in a fabulous array of colors—they're quick and easy, and sure to be worn proudly for years to come!
