Warpless Weaving

I recently heard of a new beading loom that is warpless - sort of. It still has warp threads, but it eliminates the need to weave those warp ends back in. Warp threads are the threads that are strung on the loom prior to weaving. The weaving then goes in and out of those threads. The new loom looked like it would have some limitations, expecially if you do not know the exact finished size of your piece. So I looked further into looms to see if there were any other warpless ones out there. Forgetting to put the word "bead" into my Google search, I found some interesting and truly warpless weaving looms for yarn and fiber. The TriLoom really caught my attention.

The TriLoom is a very simple loom constructed of three boards and many, many nails or pegs. It was easy to build my own over Christmas break. Weaving on the TriLoom is unique. There is no need to warp this loom prior to weaving. This loom can be entirely woven on with just one long piece of yarn - no need to cut pieces off the skein. Weaving on one side of the loom automatically produces the warp thread for future passes and the corresponding weave on the opposite side of the loom. It's really hard to describe. I'll post lots of links, pictures and instructions soon.

Dear Candle,

I have just see your last post about triangle loom and I could´t avoid writing to you.

I have my own brand of weaved itmes and the most of them have been woven by geometrical looms like triangle, square, circular loom, etc.

Please feel free to visit my web page and see how many nice garments you can make with such a simple technique!

Best wishes!
