Loop braiding is a way of making cords and bands, using only your hands and some yarn or string. My main interest is fingerloop braiding, or, more technically “finger-held loop braiding,” but I’m also interested in Japanese and Peruvian hand-held loop braiding.
I’m hoping to promote and teach loop braiding in this blog, as well as meet other braiders, crafters, and textile history buffs, and share pictures, ideas, and inspiration.
Please say hi! (comment fields are under any of the posts… Or send me an email—click Contact at top of page). I would love to hear about your fiber-related interests, answer questions or requests, or talk about braids and bands—history, materials, practical uses, tips and tricks, etc.
Click on the large links at the top of any page to get to my home page, tutorials, many nested info pages, and an index to all posts. My right sidebar ( → ) also has a category “drop-down” to posts, a monthly archive of my past posts, a link to my youtube channel, as well as links to other braiding and textile-related sites. The braids in my header photo are itemized in the comment field below.
“Follow” me! Click to follow in the right sidebar—this just means you’ll get an automated email alert when I make a new post, no other emails. I post rather sporadically, from 0 to 2 or 3 times a month.
Thanks for visiting!
