As rigid-heddle weavers know it is challenging making something wearable when using a small loom. The Salmagundi Shawl kit solves that issue because it is made by sewing together three narrow panels to create a beautiful shawl. Making panels has many advantages. You can vary the yarns in the warp for each panel to create a more complex-looking cloth, each warp can be an easily manageable length and there is very little wasted yarn when the loom waste becomes the fringe. There are 4 gorgeous color combinations to choose from.
