What’s a pegloom?
A pegloom is the most simple possible of weaving looms. It comprises just a block of wood with a line of holes drilled in it and a corresponding number of dowel pegs to fit the holes.

Available in 25 cm and 50 cm widths.
5 mm pegs are slightly thicker and stronger than the 4 mm ones, allowing more warp threads to be used as well as thicker materials for the weft. Can be used for bags, hangings, cushion covers etc.
