The Zoom Loom Review


Look I'm weaving! It's fun and easy with the Zoom Loom. The Zoom Loom is a new and improved version of the 4" x 4" pin loom. It is made by the Schacht Spindle Company of Boulder, Colorado. Inside it's handy carrying case is a sturdy 4" x 4" Zoom Loom, 6" weaving needle, 3" tapestry needle and an instruction booklet. The instruction booklet includes patterns for a scarf, place mat and tablet/e-reader case. However the possibilities are endless. Like crochet you may simply join the squares together. The Zoom Loom is ideal for beginners like me. My first squares are below. Free Zoom Loom patterns and ideas are available at Schacht. There is also a pin loom book. With the Zoom Loom you can weave anywhere, anytime. It only weighs 3.2 oz. Updates include sloping interior edges, extended sides, molded-in instructions and a yarn slot. It's an efficient and comfortable little loom to weave on. I love it. Get yours below!


This is my work on the Zoom Loom. I used alpaca wool because it's what I had left over from my knitting days. 



This is the Schacht instructional video. I especially like the Zoom Loom e-reader case.

The Zoom Loom is available worldwide at the Schacht Spindle Company. Established in 1969, by husband and wife team Barry Schacht and Jane Patrick, Schacht makes quality tools for spinners and weavers. Check out their catalog at the Schacht Spindle Company. The Zoom Loom is also available at your local yarn store.

  2. I had something like this (more basic) as a kid and made pot holders with it. That was in the late 60s early 70s. This still looks fun.

  5. This is right up my daughter's alley so to speak; she loves making crafts and has a larger loom but, not one on-the-go. This will also hone her sewing together skills which, she honestly isn't very good at ~ she knows this too, not being a meany.

  10. I love that everything comes in a carry case to keep it altogether. I can imagine that once you know what you are doing, you can tuck the loom and yarn in a pocket or purse and take it with you.

  14. I learned that when using cotton yarn one must weave looser as it doesn't stretch. Thanks for the review.
