The Cricket is made of high quality maple an apple ply and hard maple and left unfinished. As of April 2010, the Cricket has been redesigned with the ratchet gear and dog on the outside of the loom to make it even easier to adjust tension. (the picture does not show the redesign)

Included are a threading hook, warping peg, table clamps, two shuttles, and two balls of yarn.  Our 10” pick-up stick is just the right width for the loom; additional 10” shuttles are also available.

Popular spinner Symeon North demonstrates how to spin unique and creative art yarns, accompanied by clear step-by-step photography that explains each technique in Get Spun.

Taking the craft beyond intriguing but often nonfunctional yarns that are often labeled "art yarns," Get Spun teaches the reader to create useful yarns with structure and balance. By combining this range of skills with an unlimited range of fiber possibilities,knitters and fiber artisans can not only create the yarn of their dreams, they can re-create it and use it for their fiber-art projects.

Nearly all of the colorways featured in Symeon's yarns are created by hand-dyeing or blending. In addition to the spinning techniques, Symeon will share techniques for easy home dyeing and using a drumcarder to blend colors and fibers.

Here is a little loom you can easily take anywhere with you. The 18” weaving width is ideal for workshops and for all those other narrow projects.

We’ve used the same sturdy X-frame, bolt and barrel-nut construction for our Wolf Pup looms as we use for our other Wolf Looms. We also use many of the same components: steel hub friction brake, brake release foot pedal, aluminum harness channels, and an attached beater pin. The loom comes with stainless steel heddle bars and a stainless steel reed (choice of 6, 8, 10, 12 or 15 dent), and 300 wire inserted-eye heddles. The simple and elegant direct tie-up system we use was first designed by F.C. Wood of Waterford, New York, who started building the Dorset Loom in 1956.

The Wolf Pup has a direct tie-up system - each harness is tied to a single treadle. This makes for a simple, easy-to-use loom. Like its bigger siblings the Baby Wolf and Mighty Wolf looms, the Wolf Pup LT features jacks and lamms that allow any harness to be tied to any of its six treadles, in whatever combination your weave structure requires.

The Wolf Pup and Wolf Pup LT both come with the Treadle Tracker, a “mini clipboard” for holding your threading and treadling diagrams.

The Wolf Pup folds up to a depth of only 16 inches. The attached wheels automatically engage when the loom is in the folded position. The Wolf Pup can be sent via UPS.

With instructions for how to make wonderful projects and plain-weave variations, this user-friendly guide covers choosing, setting up, and weaving on a rigid heddle loom. Both beginners and experienced weavers will value its thriftiness and versatility.

What is wool? Clara starts with the fundamentals: what wool is made of, how it gets off the sheep, and how it is transformed from a jumbled mass of dirty fluff into a gorgeous yarn that so tempts us at our local yarn stores.

Who makes it? Parkes conducts an inspiring tour of sheep breeds from around the world - introducing us to the animals who give us their wool - and explains how to best knit with yarns made from their fibers.

Which yarn do I use? If only there were a way to read a skein to know how it would behave and what it wanted to become. Now there is! Parkes demystifies the generic (non-breed-specific) wool yarn you'll find at your local yarn shop, showing you how to best determine what every yarn longs to be.

What do I knit? Parkes went to some of the most creative and inquisitive design minds of the kniting world to provide more than 20 patterns that highlight the qualities of specific types of wool.

The Knitter's Book of Wool teaches you everything you need to know about wool - and its journey from pasture to pullover. The next time you pick up a skein, you won't have to wonder what to create with it. You'll just know.
