I have 15" Crickets in stock and ready to ship same or next day. 10" Crickets will ship from Schacht in about a week.
This darling little rigid heddle loom is a total stash eater! Excellent for end user and production alike (keep your inventory fresh by weaving slow-moving yarn inventory into beautiful handmade scarves or runners). The first image is the 15" model; the others show the 10" model in the up, down & neutral positions, plus a detail that lets you see the apple ply really well.
Features The Cricket Loom is compact, capable, and cute! The Cricket is available in a 10" or 15" weaving widths. The Cricket is made of high-quality apple ply and hard maple and is left unfinished. Each Cricket comes with an 8-dent reed (sorry, no substitutions). We also have 5-, 10- and 12-dent reeds. Included are a threading hook, warping peg, table clamps, two shuttles, and two balls of yarn.
10" Weaving Width At only 11" x 18" x 6" and just under four pounds, it's easy to take along. The 10" weaving width gives plenty of room to make a variety of projects without sacrificing portability. It's an ideal size for a new weaver of any age. As of April 2010, the Cricket has been redesigned with the ratchet gear and dog on the outside of the loom to make it even easier to adjust tension. Additional 10" cricket shuttles and 10" cricket pick-up sticks are available. 13" wide × 18" long × 6" high. 4lbs.
15" Weaving Width At 5.5" wider than the 10" Cricket, the 15" Cricket is still compact enough to take with you easily. The 15" weaving width offers more flexibility in your choice of weaving projects. Uses the same reeds as the 15" Flip folding rigid heddle loom. Additional 15" cricket shuttles and 15" cricket pick-up sticks are available. 18.5" w x 18" l x 6" high. 5 lbs.
Optional Accessories: Stand, bag, additional reeds, pickup sticks, and variable-dent (for multiple dpi warps in the same piece of cloth!) reeds are also available.
Looms may ship from me or Schacht, depending on my stock. Schacht orders can take a week or so to ship. Convo me to check my stock first if you like. Stands and accessories can take 2-3weeks.
