Product Description

Amazon.com

Do you remember making potholders when you were a kid? It's as much fun as ever with this classic craft kit. In addition to a sturdy, 7-square-inch metal loom, the kit includes simple instructions, a plastic hook, and enough cotton loops to make three to four potholders. (You also get a form for ordering additional loops.) Children learn basic weaving skills while building hand-eye coordination and manual dexterity. They also experience the satisfaction of creating their own colorful designs. Weaving potholders is a good quiet-time activity for rainy days, long car trips, or sick time. And kids feel proud to offer their creations as gifts or to sell at school fundraisers. --Joan DeClaire

The Harrisville cotton loops are GREAT colors.
K. Davis
This well-made metal loom has a nice weight to it, and the pegs/prongs are curved outward to help keep the loops from popping off while weaving.

She hasn't stopped making potholder gifts for everyone!

Even though I am an adult I had never created the "famous childhood potholder." The loom and the hook you use to weave the loops in and out are made of sturdy metal, and the crochet hook is plastic. There are no sharp edges, so it's safe for kids. It was also GREAT to see a quality product made in the USA! When I ordered refill loops (you can order cotton or wool) the manufacturer's customer service people were very courteous. The loops are available in a variety of colors as well.

Highly recommended!

I have bought 3 or 4 different potholder looms. I've bought different kinds of loops, too. The Harrisville loom, tools and loops are the BEST, by FAR!

The cotton loops will, I believe, stand up to heat when used as potholders. The loops that contain synthetics--oops, they will not. So don't use them as real potholders! But you can use these 100% cotton ones.

Also, these loops ALL fit your Harrisville potholder loom. No rejects. The other loops I bought had TONS that would not fit the looms. And the colors of the loops. The Harrisville cotton loops are GREAT colors. Not so for the other brands I bought.

Then there is the loom. The Harrisville loom is shaped to help hold the loops on as you work, instead of them slipping off all the time. And it is a sturdy metal, so it doesn't bend or break as you use it, like plastic looms can.

And the tools. Smooth and well-made. Some of the other brands I bought had sharp edges on the tools (and one had a bunch of knarly edges on the loom!) that would catch on the loops as I tried to weave them! What a PAIN!

The instructions are great, too, and include some ideas for making other things out of the squares.

Potholder looms are becoming very popular, for good reasons. When they are made of the right kind of loops, the potholders make great gifts--and are fun to make. There is a learning process, and thatis very beneficial to the weaver who is using the loom. It's also a fairly brief project, which fits a lot of people's situations better than something that takes a whole day or longer.

Two tips I've read that I haven't tried yet. One is to let the loops sit woven onto the loom for a day or so before you weave the ends and remove the square from the loom.

This is one case where a device has gotten MUCH more durable since my childhood. Back then, I got a potholder loom and made potholders for my Mom, Grandma and aunts before the plastic loom broke.

If I'd had the Harrisville loom, I might not still own it, but I'm pretty sure some little girl would be able to make potholders with it even now. This is a very durable metal loom. Better yet, the pegs on the loom are curved so the loops will hold on better. This makes it much easier to weave and finish your potholder.

Plus, the loops in this kit are cotton. This is important. The rayon loops melt with heat and can burn the heck out of your hands.

The kit includes enough cotton loops to make a couple of potholders. The colors are bright and the potholder is thick enough to protect your hands. These kind of potholders actually hold up for years. I'm embarrassed to say that I have a couple of them that are 24 years old. They're faded, but they still work fine for handling hot pots and pans. (They're actually the reason I bought the loom, I figured I could make some new pretty ones for myself and friends.)

The included crochet hook used for finishing the potholders is the only thing I'd suggest that you change. I bought an aluminum hook and it works much better to finish the potholders because the plastic one tends to not grip as well.

My 7 year old nieces enjoyed this. Their 6 year old brother wanted to make a potholder too! The loom is definitely an improved version of what I used when I was a kid. The loops are very good quality and make a nice looking and functional potholder.

I hesiate to review it as a toy since it seems to me to be a craft tool to create. It definately challenges the fine motor skills but was too frustrating for my 6 year old. The metal frame is durable and incredibly well made and the loops are cotton, beautifully colored and approrpiately stretchy. The lops can easily slip off while pulling to make the item so it definatly is better for an older child. The irony? I ended up using it to make wonderfully patterned potholders that my friends begged me for! I really enjoyed making them and found it to be so relaxing.... I am a frazzled mo of two young ones and can't often commit too much brain activity to a project but often feel the need to be creative. This is one of those mostly mindless, relaxing activities that gives instant gratification. I think it's a must have for every household for children, but realistically they won't be able to manage it solo until 8-9 I think (which is probably what they recommend it for but we all think our kids are so advanced right?! :-)

I bought this loom for my 9-year old niece, who loves crafts. We spent almost 2 hours making potholders and other items with the loom. It was easy for her to use, and the metal held up well. She had a plastic one where one of the teeth had broken off, but the metal one eliminated that issue. It is a low-tech, relatively easy craft for children and the fact that they can also make something useful helps make it a fun idea on a dreary day.
