Model A (8 Harness/10 Treadle)
Our floor looms are hand-built, using the highest quality hard rock maple. All of our floor looms feature an innovative tie-up system, using “snap chains” instead of cords and knots, or wires that fall out. The tie-up is quick, simple and secure for any treadle to harness combination. Our looms are designed with a friction brake for excellent tension control and an adjustable beater to accommodate reeds of different heights and widths. The suspended harnesses make the jack-action light, quiet, smooth and rhythmical - the way it should be. Unlike most looms, our floor looms are easily folded while fully warped, leaving the tie-up intact. Take them to workshops, unfold them, and you're ready to weave! Living in a small apartment? They can be folded and tucked away to entertain company or minimize studio space.
The Model A/8 weaves a full 22 inches and comes with 8 harnesses and 10 treadles. The Model A/8 is perfect for sample work and experimentation, while also providing the versatility of eight harnesses and complex weave structures. This loom offers you the chance to experience the excitement of multiple harness weaving at a surprisingly affordable price. You will find that our Models A/8 and T/8, complete with eight harnesses and ten treadles, are a fantastic value. Our looms are quiet, practical, and hand built in New Hampshire from highest quality materials.
