Peg loom

These yarns were hand dyed with natural dyes but members of the Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers.  Last night I went to the monthly meeting and we were given a demonstration on how to use a peg loom.  It is such a simple device and method yet you can produce useful products such as rugs, chair seats and bags.  All sorts of materials can be used on the peg loom, such as chunky yarn, raw fleece, selvedge etc.  This is going to be a good way to use all those bags of fleece I have in my craft room.  Now I will have to think about what colour scheme to use so that a really nice item is made.  We have a show and tell meeting at the Guild in March (such a long way off) and I would like to take a peg loom item to show.
