The smallest of our looms designed to accommodate both tapestry and bead weaving, The Little Guy is so cute, so portable and fits perfectly on a lap when he isn’t standing on a table with his two fold out legs. Weighing in at a featherweight 5 pounds, this 12 inch wide loom is a workshop goer’s dream. Weave a fiber or bead tapestry up to 9 inches wide and 22 inches high.
The Little Guy loom is the smallest loom we make that accommodates both bead and tapestry weaving. It’s small, it’s sturdy, it’s portable and it includes the shedding device and a variety of warp coils. Weave a small format tapestry on it or a bracelet. Anything is possible with the only restriction being size. When deciding between this loom as the Big Sister, your only consideration should be: what is the largest piece I will want to weave on this loom? Keep in mind that you can weave two thinner pieces on this loom. What fun is that: watching two pieces progress at the same time without the frustration of wanting to get that old piece off the loom so you can start on your next idea.
A bunch of our accessories are available for this loom including the loom extenders, which will give you enough height to turn this into a belt loom or for trying your hand at inkle weaving. Our smallest tapestry/bead loom opens up so many possibilities for someone who wants to explore both bead weaving using the shedding device (or not . . . You do not have to use the shedding device with this loom even though it is part of the loom package) and/or tapestry weaving. It is also the most portable tapestry loom available in this world. It stands at a table or works just perfectly lying in your lap. We kind of think of it as our iPad loom! Put down your knitting a try something new!

The 12" Little Guy Loom is a perfect lap loom. It's small enough to throw in a bag, but large enough to weave a piece up to 9 inches wide and 22 inches high. This loom is great for both tapestry and bead weavers and is a wonderful starter loom.
