The COMPLETE Weaving Kit!

Maybe it's the fact you get more bang for your buck; your yarn goes further with weaving as opposed to knitting an crochet which take more yardage. Or maybe it's the fact you can finish a whole scarf in just an afternoon? It definitely has something to do with the fact it is a basic skill we are all born with; we are all natural weavers and you don't need to learn complicated stitches and terms to make your first project.

With the huge increase in the popularity of weaving, Ashford have designed a kit which will take the hassle out of buying gifts for friends and family this holiday season. Ideal for those who have an interest in trying out, taking up or just dabbling in weaving for wholesome therapy.

What we love so much about this kit is that it's so much easier to point your spouse in the right direction; the products are all there so they don't have to hunt them down on the website, complain that it's too hard, give up and get you a new toaster instead of what you really want. It all comes in a tidy and easy-to-wrap box too!

Of course you can buy it for yourself; scarves are quick and easy to make and you would have time to make a few before Christmas as gifts. A totally justifiable early Christmas gift to yourself we say. Haha!  It's not just scarves either; you can weave strips and sew them together to make blankets, clothing and bags. It's also great for making wall hangings, table runners and cushion covers!
