50th Anniversary Black & White Potholder Loom
In 1985 Harrisville Designs launched the Friendly Loom product line in an effort to create quality craft kits for children and beginners. They sold our first potholder kit in 1991 and launched our popular PRO-sized potholder line in 2012. They take pride in the fact that all of their products are still made in the USA by weavers, spinners, and woodworkers. In celebration of their 50-year anniversary as a company, they've created a special, limited-edition potholder kit for our customers. The kit includes a 7" chrome loom, silver weaving and crochet hooks, and enough black and winter white loops to weave 4 potholders.
Harrisville Designs' 7" 50th Anniversary Potholder Loom is fun, easy-to-learn, function, and great for all ages! The looms and cotton loops are custom made and the highest quality out there. With this metal (not plastic!) loom you can make colorful potholders for your home or as gifts. The pegs were designed so that the loops won't slip-off while you're working. Each kit includes the following and if you need more loops pop over to our loop listing for bags of oh-so-colorful loops!
- Sturdy Metal Loom 7" x 7" square.
- 2 Hooks (one metal for loop weaving and one plastic for finishing).
- Illustrated instructions.
- Enough cotton loops to make four black & winter white potholders.
- Multicolored 100% Cotton Loops (enough for two potholders).
- Additional loops sold separately.
There’s probably someone you know who made potholders on a loom like this when they were a child. It’s one of those wonderful old fashioned inventions still popular and useful today. It’s fun, and easy to do for all ages (especially folks age 6+)!

Harrisville Designs has been spinning 100% Virgin Wool Yarn in Harrisville, New Hampshire for over 50 years. As one of a handful of woolen mills left in this country, Harrisville's textile tradition is rich and dates back to 1794 when the first of several mills was built across the Nubanusit River to harness the water-power necessary for carding fleeces brought down to the village from local hilltop farms.
