The Heirloom Hatchling Large Fixed Gauge Loom is perfect for bulky yarn or double stranded worsted weight yarn. It is made with Goncalo Alves wood. Goncalo Alves is native to South America and ranges in color from light to deep reddish-brown. The pegs are spaced further apart from each other and the pins then our standard looms and allow for easy use of bulky yarn. The gauge is fixed and pegs and pins are on the same board. The DRAGON produces a similar gauge fabric to the large plastic looms with an average of 2.25 sts and 3.75 rows per 1 inch using Lion Brand Hometown USA #6 weight yarn.
The Hatchling comes as pictured with 2 sides and 2 end pairs for a total of 24 pegs. The end pairs will slide up and down the loom allowing you to knit any number of pegs in the round from 24 down to 14-16 pegs. With our Kiss peg/pin system this loom has fast wrapping and nice even knit stitches. The looms weighs in at 11 oz so it's light weight and with the Kiss U-stitch and peg style is also much easier on your hands when working with heavier yarns.
