Our looms are hand-built in New Hampshire. Please allow 3-4 weeks for assembled looms.
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 A4 weaves a full 22 inches and comes with 4 harnesses and 6 treadles. As one of the most popular workshop looms on the market, the versatile Model A4 is ideal as a first loom, or as a second loom to have for smaller projects and sampling. This is the perfect starter loom for beginner weavers, and we are often told by customers that they thoroughly enjoyed the ease of learning to weave on this loom. Looking for a smaller loom that still allows for complex weave structures? Explore our A8. Our looms are quiet, practical, and hand built in New Hampshire from highest quality materials.
