In the US few people are familiar with twinning unless they make baskets or twinned rag rugs. If you would like to learn more about Rag Rug Twinning and it's resurgence in America...HERE is a U-Tube video.
I make rag rugs and table runners and was drawn to this weave because it covers the warp completely and creates a more interesting texture than the typical over and under basket weave. The other thing is using fabric strips for both your warp and weave. As a quilter/sewer/crafter, I have lots of scrap strips.
Libby LuLa Looms are handcrafted one at a time, and feature adjustable wooden peg bars for length and width choices. Metal rods run the length of the loom and ensure a smooth straight edge as the fabric strips are wrapped around them.
Overall size is 47"H x 28"W which will make a large rug approximately 25" x 42".
The companion 'Easel' completes the loom and for me was a must as I prefer to stand while working on the loom. The Easel is also handcrafted to match the loom and is a separate order.

My first project was a 'Twined Table Runner' made of denim. It was 12 inches wide and 48 inches long. A formidable first time project to be sure, but that's my OverDoSue thing. I was very pleased with the way it turned out and quite satisfied with being able to weave again.
