Designed by two Sami band weavers in Sweden, Stoorstalka products capture the spirit of the Sami weaving style and combine them with modern materials. Sami weaving has historically produced bands for use as belts, on backpacks and as clothing accessories. The Sami (Saami) are indigenous inhabitants of the northern regions of modern day Norway, Finland, Sweden and the Kola Peninsula of Russia. Often called Laplanders in English, the Sami are probably best known for reindeer herding.
Stoorstalka's smallest pattern picking heddle, Sunna 5 is included in the kit. It has five slots for pattern threads and make picking patterns very easy. If you never have woven bands before, we recommend that you to start with another weaving kit: Bandweaving Kit Jokkmokk which is the most basic form of bandweaving.
Áhkko is a 4-ply worsted weight 100% wool yarn.
