One of Mirrix's three medium-sized looms will be the best fit for you.
The 12" Little Guy Loom
The 12” Little Guy Loom can make a piece 9” x 24” and is our largest loom that we consider a “lap loom”. It is available both with and without the shedding device. You can learn more about it here: https://www.mirrixlooms.com/collections/looms/products/12-little-guy-loom
The 16" Big Sister Loom
The 16” Big Sister Loom can make a piece 13” x 34”, comes with the shedding device and is portable, weighing only 6 lbs. You can learn more about the 16” Loom here: https://www.mirrixlooms.com/collections/looms/products/16-big-sister-loom
The 22" Zach Loom
From what you’ve said, it sounds like the 22” Zach Loom would be a good fit for you. It can make a piece 19” x 47” and comes standard with the shedding device. You can learn more about the 22” Loom here: https://www.mirrixlooms.com/collections/looms/products/22-zach-loom
What else might you want?
-Heddles. You only need these if you are using the shedding device. You can either purchase pre-made ones, or make your own. We have instructions on this page.
-Beading Thread. Here at Mirrix Loom we love C-Lon size D beading thread because it is specifically designed for use with beads. It doesn’t fray easily, it’s strong and it comes in many beautiful colors. Other people use Fireline. Almost any beading thread you have that is strong should work.
-Beads. Delicas, Tohos… almost any bead works!
-A Beading Needle. A strong beading needle like a Tulip Bead Weaving Needle is perfect for weaving beads on a loom.
You’ll also want some basic supplies like a good pair of scissors and a measuring tape.
