Learn to Weave Rep Kit
Learn to Weave Rep Kit
Warp-faced rep weave is a playground of vibrant color and patterning possibilities. Because rep lets you weave many blocks on just a few shafts, a world of design awaits whether you’re weaving with four shafts, eight shafts, or more.
With this kit you’ll learn how to weave rep and design your own patterns from master weaver Rosalie Neilson’s video Weaving Rep. In it, Rosalie will teach you tips and tricks for warping, weaving, keeping clean selvedges, and designing your own rep masterpieces.
Once you’ve learned how to weave rep from Rosalie, apply what you’ve learned and weave a set beautiful jewel-tone, 4-shaft rep coasters. Designed by Susan E. Horton, the Little Rep Gem Coasters are a perfect project for anyone trying rep for the first time. They’re quick and easy to warp and a delight to weave. Each coaster is different so you’ll learn how to change your treadling for different effects in rep, and with this kit you get all the yarn you need to weave a set of four.

- Fun Little Project
- This was my first time with Rep Weaving - and what fun it was! The colors are fabulous: bright, cheerful, and surprisingly sophisticated. The warping was a bit of a challenge for me as a new weaver because I had never wound a stripe pattern like this before. Taking a tip from Tom Knisely's advice in his Weave with Novelty Yarns video, it went smoothly and I was able to get everything wound and onto the loom. The weaving itself went very quickly and now I have a pair of coasters (the others went as gifts) in my living room that make me smile. And the video is thorough, articulate, and very interesting.
