Schacht spindle Co. has developed a weaving card that, at 9cm (3.5") square, is comfortable in the hand without being bulky.

Coloured bands and stripes are printed along each edge as an aid to keep track of the card’s position as you weave.

Made from a sturdy yet flexible 250gsm card stock, these cards will serve you well over many warps.

The cards come in packs of 25, more than enough for a range of projects.

ABOUT CARD WEAVING

Card weaving (also known as tablet weaving) is a way to create patterned woven bands and belts.

Though cards are often regarded as a simple tool, the weavings they can produce are infinite in design and complexity.

The portability of card weaving makes it possible to carry the equivalent of a four harness loom in your pocket.

You can use weaving cards on their own with a simple tensioning device, such as tying the yarn to a door knob and tensioning around your waist. Or use the cards on a loom, an inkle loom is ideal, but you can also use them on a rigid heddle, table top multi-shaft loom or floor loom.

YARN SUGGESTIONS

For inkle loom weaving look for yarns that have the following characteristics: smooth, strong and relatively inelastic. Perle cotton (also known as mercerized cotton) in size 3/2 or size 5/2, embroidery floss, cotton rug warp, linen or firmly twisted wools are all suitable.
