Card weaving (also known as tablet weaving) is a way to create patterned woven bands that are sturdy and beautiful. Though cards are often regarded as a simple tool, the weavings they can produce are infinite in design and complexity. The portability of these cards gives you the possibility of carrying a four harness loom in your pocket.
You can use the cards on their own with a simple tensioning device, such as tying the yarn to a door knob and tensioning around your waist. Or use the cards on a loom. An Inkle Loom is an ideal companion, but you can also use them on a Cricket, Flip, table, or floor loom.
Schacht has developed a card that, at 3-1/2‚Ä≥ inches square, is comfortable in the hand without being bulky. Colored bands and stripes are printed along each edge to help you keep track of the card‚Äôs position. Made of sturdy yet flexible 24-point card stock, these cards will serve you well over many, many warps.
