My loom

A couple of months ago, I reported that a friend had given me a sheep’s fleece so that I could make a chair mat similar to some she had made herself. And now I have the loom to do it.

I have to say, my dad did the bulk of the work, drilling the holes in the base

as well as sawing the dowelling and putting holes in these pegs.

But I did the sanding, so that all parts were smooth and snag-free.

Altogether a very satisfying job done! And here’s a short video, showing you what I’ll be doing next: How to use a peg loom

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
