A child’s loom for Saori Weaving

Over at Saori No Mori in Japan they have been working on developing a child-sized floor loom.

It is sooooo adorable – a version of the SX-60 folding loom in miniature. I have a prototype of the loom to try out and took it to the Victoria Fibre Festival this past weekend.

The children loved it and they were lined up to try it out. Everything is within their own reach.

It will be great for schools and other places that teach children to weave as it is a full working floor loom in a small size. It is also height adjustable and so it will work for children for many years. In these photos you see it at it’s smallest size.

I’ll let you know when it is available for sale!

Happy Weaving,

    What a great little loom. I do a lot of weaving and spinning outreach activities with children in my area, and I’d just love to have a little SAORI loom like this. The children look so comfortable sitting at it and weaving. What an opportunity!

    Isn’t it great?? I believe that Saori No Mori (Japan) hopes to have them for sale in North America by the fall (or so) …..they are still working out some details and making adjustments – but as you can see by the photos, the children love it. Everything is within their own reach.

    I have been weaving with children and on the regular Saori looms many of them have to stand to reach the treadles, or sit on someone’s lap – this way they can do the whole thing by themselves. Fun!
