Weaving yarn for weaving frame (loom) / Waldorf handicraft tools – Glückskäfer
Glückskäfer’s white weaving yarn is used for weaving frames (looms) and is break and stretch resistant, preventing crafts from losing their shape. Providing the perfect balance of strength and softness, the yarn’s strength supports weaves, even once removed from the loom.
The weaving yarn warps the loom and can be applied for a wide variety of projects such as rugs, tapestries and even crocheting.
Weaving is a highly tactile experience and a fun, creative Waldorf handwork activity. It is taught in Waldorf Schools worldwide from around the age of 6 and projects can range from beginner to advanced.
The craft of weaving has many benefits for children, including the development of fine motor dexterity, hand-eye coordination and the concentration and patience required for focused attention on a task. It enhances the ability to understand and follow processes and encourages problem solving skills in overcoming any mistakes.
Weaving is a calming and satisfying handicraft, providing children with a sense of pride and achievement in their creations too. The sensorial experience of working with natural fibres creates an active connection to the natural world for both children. Weaving is used in both Montessori and Waldorf education and is one of the Waldorf handcrafts.
