Tapestry Tools

Camilla Valley Farm stocks all the tools required for Tapestry weaving. This includes Combs, Bobbins, Rya and Pick-up sticks.


Tapestry Beaters

Used by Tapestry artists to beat the weft in, Leclerc makes two Tapestry Beaters or Combs.

The Light Comb in the foreground has 8 Teflon coated teeth and weighs 1/4 pound (115 gram). The comb is made out of Maple hardwood and is 8 inches (20 cm) long and 2 1/4 inches (55 mm) wide. The teeth are 1 3/4 inches (45 mm) long.

The Heavy Comb is also made of hard Maple and is great for beating weft for carpets of knotted pile or any material where a very stiff fabric is the desired result. The Comb has been designed with internal metal weights to make it weigh 2 pounds (900 grams) and is 2 13/16 inches (72 mm) wide and 11 inches (28 cm) long with 15 teeth, each 1 3/8 inches (35 mm) long.
