Texsolv two leg pegs
The texsolv two leg pegs come in packets of 25
The texsolv two leg pegs are especially designed to lock the texsolv cord in place. The nook on the flat side of the peg is slipped into a split in the cord. The two legs are then pushed into a hole on the treadle or lam. The peg is locked into the hole with the cord securely placed on it. Lams and treadles can easily be lifted up and down for weaving. The cord and peg can be shifted or taken off afterwards.
This boatshuttle is long (35cm or about 14inches) and not as high as the normal boat shuttles.
These bobbins fit into most shuttles, are lightweight and have a rough surface for good holdage of the yarn. They are made out of cardboard and are 13cm long. These bobbins are perfect for light or heavy yarns.
The bobbins can be purchased single or in a bundle of 50.
The thread holder is a niffty article to use and a very handy thing to have.
Needles with ball-point
9cm, 6cm, 5.5cm
These needles are especially designed for finishing your handwoven products. The needles are longer than normal and have a small round knob at the tip. The knob is there to prevent the needle from piercing the threads while fixing or correcting your work. This way the needle picks up the thread instead going through it and the thread can easily "woven" back into its correct place.
The needles come in three sizes, two for very fine work (5.5cm + 6cm) and the other needle (9cm) for a bit rougher handwoven articles.

The thread counter is a magnifying glass imbedded in a foldable frame with an exact square of 2 x 2cm hole underneath. This is a very handy gadget for your easy counting of ends or picks. Stand the counter on your woven fabric with the glass showing up, bend down and peek through the glass. Looking through the magnifying glass makes the counting of the threads real easy and gives you the exact amount of threads per 2cm. After counting, the gadget can be folded up into a small square which fits into any pocket.
The thread counter has a magnifying glass which enlarges 8x the normal size and a metal frame.
This threading hook has a long arm, which makes it very convenient for catching the threads, even when they are far back. The hook itself is imbedded into the arm so the threads once in the hook won't slip off too easily.
This hook is 24cm long and has a red plastic handle.

I find most reed hooks are too thick and short for easy sleying. This reed hook though is made out of a very thin metal blade which slides even through the most narrow dents. The hook is embedded into the blade for convenient holding of the threads. This reed hook has a handle and lays comfortable in your hand.
The reed hook is 19cm and has a wooden handle.
The fringe twister is a must have for scarf weavers. With this twister you can make an easy and quick fringe without much effort. It twists the strands with the equal amount of turns each time. The clips are very strong and won't drop your strands.
The fringe twister is Aussie made out of Australian wood and comes with instructions on how to make fringes and cords.
The texsolv cord comes in two thicknesses, 1/12 (3mm) and 1/20 (5mm).
The texsolv cord is a unique nylon cording system from Glimakra, Sweden. It is a white nylon cord with a split every 1cm (1/12 cord) and every 2cm (1/20 cord). The cord is very strong and long lasting. It is mainly used on looms for hanging up the shafts and treadles.
Texsolv arrow pegs
The texsolv arrow pegs come in packets of 25
The texsolv arrow pegs are especially designed to lock the texsolv cord in place. The pointing end of the peg is put through two splits in the cord to create a loop. The loop can then be wrapped around a shaft frame or hook. This will hold the cord in place , but can easily be ajusted if necessary. This system is a really easy and safe way of being able to move your shafts/treadles up and down.
