Among the simplest of looms, the tapestry loom holds a continuous warp under tension, allowing the weaver to see all of the warp at once. Sheds are formed using heddle bars and string heddles or Texsolv heddles. While only two heddle bars are needed for traditional tapestry weaving, Schacht provides four heddle bars so that beginning weavers can also experiment with 4-shaft pattern weaving.
The 25″ tapestry loom has a tension beam with thumb screws to keep the warp tension even throughout your weaving. The continuous warping system allows a 60″ long warp to be put directly on the loom without using any other warping tools. Shown here with optional A-Frame Stand.
The School Loom is a simple frame loom that ensures success, because Schacht designed it to be easy to warp and weave on. It has a 15″ weaving width, a built-in stand for upright use on the floor or a tabletop, and durable plastic teeth for a sett of 6 ends per inch. Weavers of all ages will find it easy to use. Included with each loom: two pick-up sticks, a weaving needle, and simple warping and weaving instructions. The School Loom is made of hard maple and left unfinished.
The Lilli Loom is an ideal size for on-the-go tapestry projects and more. Made of solid hardwood maple with sturdy no-slip plastic teeth, you can wind the warp for either 6 or 12 ends per inch. The 10″ x 15″ is an ideal size for learning to weave, making samples, small projects, and travel.
