Checklist For Weaving Frames
- Already from the age of four years your child can work with a weaving frame if he or she has motor skills.
- Older children will need your guidance at first, but will soon be able to make their first weavings on their own.
- Weaving frames for children are made of both wood and plastic. Both variants are very robust and can withstand the first weaving attempts of your child.
- Weaving frames with two metal spokes at the beginning and end of the warp are especially recommended. These prevent the weaving piece from warping if the weft thread is pulled too hard.
- When choosing a model, make sure that the warp thread attachments do not have sharp edges. This could damage the warp thread.
- Talented and skilled small weavers can later switch to a more extensive weaving frame with additional spokes to weave even faster and more precisely.
- The weaving frame can be used to make creative one-of-a-kind items from yarn from the very first weaving attempt. From small wall hangings to potholders or bags, many projects are possible to motivate your child to weave.
- In addition to specially suitable weaving yarn, it is of course also possible to turn other yarns, wool scraps and anything that can be processed with the weaving frame into works of art. Your child will acquire a feel for the technique and learn to consciously create with the different material textures.
- Children who already know how to weave will enjoy weaving sets that contain the material to make a specific object.
- In addition to the weaving frame itself, a weaving shuttle and a weaving comb to neatly compress the threads are usually included in the delivery of a weaving frame. The shuttle can be made of wood or in the style of a metal weaving needle.
- More comprehensive weaving frame sets often include a starter supply of weaving yarn in many different colors.
- Most weaving frame sets come with instructions that explain how to assemble and string the frame. The technique itself is also explained again in the instructions.

FAQ About Weaving Frames
To stretch a weaving frame, use a double knot to attach the warp yarn end to the left end of the rod. Then, starting from the left, the thread is repeatedly passed to the right and alternately up and down through the notches of the weaving frame. The thread should always be kept taut during the weaving process.
The bars of the weaving frame must be lifted out of the frame. Any loops that were wrapped around the wooden teeth during weaving must also be lifted out. The rods must be carefully pulled out of the woven piece. You should make sure that the curved side of the rods is pulled out first. The loops of your woven piece must now be fixed individually (e.g. by passing a rod for hanging through the loops).
Starting from one side of the weaving frame, unhook one “pair” of threads at a time. The woven piece must then be pressed down slightly to create a small bulge on the woven piece.
