Product Description:

Making potholders is a great introduction to weaving, and a fun, relaxing and creative activity too. And the results are very useable, which we love! Both of these kits are designed to last many potholders, with sturdy metal looms and metal weaving hooks. The metal loom pegs slant outward to prevent loops from slipping off, which is especially helpful for young kids! The loops included with each kit are 100% cotton, and custom-sized to fit the loom, which is often not the case in less expensive kits. The instructions included offer instructions on starting and finishing potholders, along with design ideas and suggestions for additional projects using the basic potholder. This kit includes enough cotton loops to make two potholders.

Publisher Description:

Kit Makes Two 6" x 6" Potholders

Our traditional looms and loops are custom made, and are the highest quality out there. Make colorful potholders for your home, as gifts or to sell as a fund-raiser for your school, church, or club.

Our Standard Loom has enough loops to make 2 Potholders, Order the "Deluxe Loom" to get enough loops to make 6 potholders! Our Potholder Loom is metal, not plastic! We’ve improved the peg design so the loops won’t slip off as easily while you weave.

Includes:

  • Sturdy Metal Loom 7" x 7"
  • 2 Hooks (one metal for loop weaving and one plastic for finishing)
  • Illustrated instructions
  • Enough cotton loops to make two potholders
  • Multicolored 100% Cotton Loops

Additional loops sold separately.

There’s probably someone you know who made potholders on a loom like this when they were a child. It’s one of those wonderful old fashioned inventions still popular and useful today. It’s fun, and easy to do for all ages!

I love my first Harrisville loom so much I wanted a second. High quality. If you have trouble with loops slipping off pegs for any looms of this sort, keep a few binder clips handy. Place on each corner as you cast off the hotpad to maintain tension, and the loops really don't slip off. My nieces and nephews love helping me so much I wanted a second so we can work on projects simultaneously.

I am 72 yrs old. This is a simple toy that I had as a child. I learned a craft on this loom that enabled me to go on and learn other more detailed crafts. Crafts that no one does any longer. I think there are just too many electronic devices and kids are not allowed to be kids any more. Maybe they need to be taught more simple values.

Sturdier metal version

Because it is made of metal and will last longer than a plastic one.

Kids enjoy making potholders. It is a relaxing activity for the evening and the best part, they make something useful that can stay in our kitchen or can be given to our friends!
Nela L on Sep 24, 2017
4 year old says she wants to learn how to weave. Too young yet for a real loom, and my mother keeps asking if the kids want one of these kits so they can make her pot holders. I like that it is made out of metal and that the loops are actually cotton! The synthetic loops of the other looms are what has really kept me from purchasing one of these before.
Emily M on Mar 2, 2016
I have an almost five year granddaughter who loves to make things. I remember making pot holders in camp as a young girl. So glad to see a quality loom and all cotton loops!

Love this loom!
I’m sticking with traditional size looms and have 2. This one has the pegs bent out a little bit and the loops stay on while binding off. Makes it so easy.

Classic craft item, well made
This is a nice, study loom. My girls like weaving, and I will get some refill kits so they can make more. Potholders for everyone for Christmas!

My kids LOVE this
This was a request of my kids and they were so happy with it! It wasn't too easy nor overly challenging. I did have to help them a little bit (ages almost 6 and 8). They made creations and gave them as gifts to my neighbors immediately. Very cool and very fun! Well made and sturdy. Ribbons were high quality and the loom is metal so very durable.

I purchased a cheaper plastic potholder loom for daughter and she loved it until it broke This one is made of metal and we both love the feel of the 100% cotton loops I wish that I had saved my money and purchased this one first! She is so excited for me to use the potholders that she made
