Who is SAORI for?
SAORI Is for Anyone and Everyone
One of the main tenets of SAORI weaving is that anyone can do it, whether you’re an experienced weaver or have never before sat at a loom. Neither your age nor your physical ability matter.

All that’s required for SAORI weaving is one of our looms, some yarn that sparks joy in you, and the willingness to explore the unknown, see where your imagination takes you, and embrace the natural beauty of your undirected creativity.
