Arachne Loom Package Design
Arachne Loom is a look-alike and self-contained package. Designed to look like a spider web, the Arachne Loom packages yarn, a knitting hook, a knitting loom and a bulletin board into one package. The target audience are youth interested in knitting crafts.

Yarn naturally tangles, becoming hard to work with. By being wrapped around the loom, the yarn does not get tangled. Each loom contains enough yarn to create a hat on that sized loom because the most common item made on the round looms are hats. The knitting ‘spider’ hook, resembles a spider building a web as it is used to hook the yarn on the knitting loom. The spider assigned to each loom are web-weavers and increase from smallest to largest to match the ascending loom size. The looms can also be used as a bulletin board for its second life.
