Step into an ancient craft with a modern twist with Schachtís new Card Weaving Cards!
Card weaving (also known as tablet weaving) is a way to create patterned woven bands that are thick, sturdy and beautiful.
Though cards are often regarded as a simple tool, the weavings they can produce are infinite in design and complexity. The portability of these cards gives you the possibility of carrying a four harness loom in your pocket.
You can use the 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 an ideal companion, but you can also use them on a rigid heddle, table, or floor loom.
Schacht has developed a card that, at 3 Ĺ inches square, is comfortable in the hand without being bulky. Colored bands and stripes are printed along each edge as a helpful aid in keeping track of the cardís position.
Made of sturdy yet flexible 24-point card stock, these cards will serve you well over many, many warps.
The cards come in packages of 25, more than enough for a range of projects.
All you need to add is yarn and a belt shuttle.
With such a low entry point, you can start weaving complex bands at less than the cost of two coffees!
