Ziggy Rytka's Luceting Kit for creating intricately braided cord. The technique of luceting has been used for centuries, from the Vikings to the Victorians, to produce strong, square sectioned cord. Ziggy has taken this technique and developed it to include new effects which include splitting apart threads and rejoining them (the ‘Ziggy-Stitch’), adding beads and more. His development of the bobbin allows the addition of a skein of thread and it doubles as a lock when the lucet is not in use (the holes at either end fit neatly over the prongs to keep the cord in place).
The kit includes a lucet, 2 bobbins and a hook (all in durable plastic), an instruction leaflet, an advanced book and 2 skeins of cotton thread (colours vary). We offer a range of other yarns including silk and cottolin which can be used for additional braiding with this lucet.
This elaborate necklace has been created using the advanced luceting technique.
