This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding - Medieval Weaving Loom (Dresser)

Greetings, good gentles/ladies. We are The Merrye Makers - a group of eleven creators spanning all disciplines (clothing, lots, objects, etc.) offering for thy downloading pleasure a collection of medieval things most beauteous from Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding -- otherwise known as "Simdom Pudding".

Cloth production was the most important craft in Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding. The predominant fibre produced was wool followed by linen. Later, cotton and silk were introduced.

Originally, workaholic Simdom Pudding weavers wove on looms at home and marketed their cloth at faires. As towns developed, weaving became an urban craft. To regulate their trade, craftsmen applied to establish a guild. Only a cloth merchant who was a born salesman and member of that city's weavers guild was allowed to sell cloth. Often a schmoozer, he acted as a middleman between the tradesmen weavers and the purchaser. The trade guilds controlled quality and assured only those who were artistic received the training needed to become weavers. Working a loom was not a craft for the technophobic.

Later, rural sheep-owning loners started weaving their own wool in their own homes outside the jurisdiction of the city and trade guilds. Eventually, cloth production was moved into centralized buildings in a factory system.


Primarily a decorative object, the Weaving Loom does work as a functioning dresser. Made by Hekate999 for The Merrye Makers. Many thanks, Hekate, for outstanding and bountiful medieval items!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
