ASSEMBLING VESTO LOOM

In this video you will see the easiest way to assemble the 3 parts of the loom: Front, Back and Sleeve. 
With the slot adjustment system you can change the size quickly.

BEST YARN FOR THIS PROJECT

We love to use pure wool aran thickness yarn ️. The garment will be warm but it will feel light on the body.


How to know the thickness of the yarn? Wrapping a ruler or a gauge with the thread! When you get 8 to 10 turns per inch (2.5 cm.), the thread is aran thickness and it is perfect for the warp.

For the weft you can use aran, or a thicker yarn (chunky or super bulky). If you have hand-spun art yarn, you can include it and highlight the garment with beautiful details!
