The loom design also has specific spacing between notches so that the loom can be set wider apart for beginners and closer together for more experienced weavers or delicate work. The different spacing, also known as the 'Sett', can be 2, 4, 8 or 16 EPI (ends-per-inch).
Loom Size: 15cm x 20cm (weaving width 11cm x 16cm)
