History: The 5" Mini Mirrix was originally created as an extremely portable loom for bead weavers who were looking for a small loom with great tension. Soon, though, tapestry weavers started buying the Mini for sampling and small pieces without the shedding device. It is the perfect second (or third, or fourth) Mirrix Loom but is also a great starter loom.
Fun Fact: You can warp the Mini two ways right out of the box. It comes with a No Warp-Ends Kit, which allows you to weave pieces with only two ends to finish.
Uses: Bead Weaving, Tapestry Weaving (without the shedding device)
Statistics: Weight: 1.8 lbs Width: 5″ Height: 7″ – 9 3/4″ Makes a piece: 2 1/2″ x 16″
What Customers Say (Reviews from the Mirrix Store):
This is the perfect go-everywhere loom. The smallest of the Mirrix looms, but still strong and sturdy. Limited by size but not creativity the Mini is a perfect bead and tapestry loom. Extension bars can be added to make longer warps. Same great tension bars as the larger looms make warping very easy. No matter what size loom is your first purchase…eventually you will get a Mini. They are simply a fun little loom . -Susan
Great small loom with all the Mirrix features you expect! The extra goodies that come with this loom make it a perfect companion for smaller beaded projects! -Sleepyh
This is about the cutest loom on the market. But don’t let that fool you. It ALL Mirrix! I can achieve wonderful tension on my beading projects just like the larger models, but it’s small enough to tuck in a small tote bag and head out the door. Bracelets, bag handles, pendants, and tiny tapestries. I adore this little loom. -Gail
