Pale Rose, the first Ullvuna free pattern

:::LEER EN ESPA√ĎOL

I started Ullvuna 7 years ago. Today is the first time I share the patterns of my original, unique and beloved designs with you ūüôā

Every mother thinks her child is the “most beautiful” then I couldn`t be objective to choose the pattern to share, so I proposed the election of it to the¬†Pin loom weaving support group from¬†Facebook, which I belong to.

I selected 5 very different designs. The voting was open for 3 days and finally the chosen design was the following:

Imagine the object first – Part 2

:::LEER EN ESPA√ĎOL

(Go to Imagine the object first РPart 1)

This story is about creating, so I invite you to design your own woven things with the Zoom Loom or Weave-It (very similar), the same way I taught my students in the last workshop.

It is a very simple method, before starting weaving you have to imagine the objects first, it means to figure out how you can build a cushion, sweater, or whatever you want to achieve, starting with a 10×10 cm (4×4″) fabric square.

The trailer of our next workshops is already on Youtube. Watch it here.

It was a hard recording and editing work, but highly enjoyable. We included some of the projects developed in my book “100 pin loom squares“, such as throw, hairband, fingerless gloves, slippers, etc. in a different fun way.

Rain of inspiration

:::LEER EN ESPA√ĎOL

In this rainy day, what a better opportunity to get inspired by wool. I have no reasons to be against acrylic yarns, I think all kinds of yarn can coexist, they all have pros and cons. But alpaca and sheep wool have got incomparable features, and the mere fact that they are natural makes them even more lovable.

And the day arrived

:::LEER EN ESPA√ĎOL

Yes, it has. In less than 24 hours, our first workshop of¬†zoom loom¬†mini weaving loom will start ūüôā

What zoom loom is? A weaving loom rarely known in Chile, some call it colombian weaving loom. The old version used to be the weave-it loom and it was quite famous a fews decades ago. Zoom loom is a commercial product of the US company Schacht Spindle, based on the weave-it loom. The zoom loom is a redesign, a revival, plastic made, a modern and much more attractive weaving set.
