What is it?
It is a rectangular shaped tool for weaving which we can use to create flat fabric. Parallel threads, called warps, are placed vertically. They are raised individually or in groups (using the thread lifter) forming an opening, called openwork, through which the threads that cross horizontally, called the weft, are interlaced. With the weave of the warp and the weft, a fabric is formed.
Who is it for?

How do you play?
-The Fizz Ideas Frame Loom is a starter loom.
-Before each new project, the first step is to place a warp. We can use the thread lift tool if necessary, depending on whether the objective is to work on the coordination of movements with the selection of even and odd or, on the contrary, to make a fabric with less difficulty.
We can make multiple types of fabrics with various techniques.
You can visit our Pinterest page to get ideas.
The last step is to remove the warp from the loom.
