Shape Loom Weaving

You can apply the following steps to warp any of The Unusual Pear Shape Looms. 

Warping Option 1: Warp on the front side only, leaving the finished weaving attached to the loom - no need to cut and tie those warp threads onto something else, you can use the beautiful Bluegum loom to frame your weaving.

Warping Option 2: Warp the loom front and back, when you're finished the weaving, you can cut the warps from the back of the loom and tie them together so you can keep using your Shape Looms over and over again!

Bamboo fibre compared to wool is much silkier, softer and lighter. I would consider this to be a more intermediate to advanced fibre to spin on it's own due to its slippery, silky nature. The staple length is approximately 10cm long.
