Traditional Snowshoes - DIY Weaving Kit (Vintage Frames)
Traditional snowshoe weaving kit, including all the supplies and instructions necessary to weave your own pair of traditional snowshoes with our high-test monofilament fishing line.
The frames are crafted from high quality hardwood. Rugged and lightweight, these are the best snowshoes we’ve found for wilderness travel away from packed trails.
The monofilament fishing line (400 & 250lb test) we use is lighter, stronger and more abrasion resistant than traditional rawhide. It also needs no varnish, and is much less likely to stick to wet snow. Quite simply it performs better and lasts longer than rawhide across a much wider range of conditions (and doesn’t require annual maintenance).

We have a series of snowshoe weaving videos which have been published on YouTube! These videos demonstrate and instruct the entire weaving process.
