It's so easy to use

pixeLoom is like a paint program for weaving drafts. It allows you to create a pattern, visualize or modify an existing design, as well as experiment with colorways, treadling options and borders. 

Editing Tools

The editing tools allow you to enter and modify drafts. Once you get used to how pixeLoom works, you won't have to stop and think about how to do something in the software - it's very intuitive.

Project Planner

The project planner is a weaver's calculator. Enter the finished dimensions and other parameters, and it calculates the width in the reed and warp length. The yarn database helps determine how much yarn will be needed for the project.

Block Substitution

The block substitution function allows you incorporate a weave structure into a design. Choose from over 70+ structure files that are included with the program.

Draft Browser

The Draft Browser makes it easy to find a draft in your collection by showing a thumbnail of each one as you scroll through them.

Fabric Analysis

The Fabric Analysis mode lefts you draw a design in the drawdown. Shafts and treadles are added as the draft is created


A number of features have been added with instructors and authors in mind. Any element of the draft can be copied and then pasted into a document, for instance.
