Card / Inkle / Tablet weaving loom - 100 percent cherry wood, complete with handcrafted cherry dowels. This loom has a double tension system, with both the back flap and the lower adjustment bar. This double tension system gives the weaver a much larger range of motion - allowing greater movement of the warp for a correct tension while weaving. This is particularly important while card weaving, as there is a fairly large take-up and without the additional tension bar, makeshift forms of warp adjustment are required. The knobs used on the tensioning bars are both made of handcrafted cherry wood as well - this gives your loom a fantastic hand crafted look and feel.
The loom is a small / med size - with a shed distance of 15 inches from peg to peg, weaving shed around 11 inches. The loom is 11 inches tall, 21 inches long, pegs are 2 3/4 in length. It sits well in the lap for weaving - but can also be set on a table.
The finish one the loom is a simple linseed oil wipe. The Linseed oil both feeds the wood, and brings out the natural beauty of the Cherry wood. There will be no wood stain to affect your warp.
This is one the awesome Dr. Who inspired looms (more to come, doing an entire series)- all edges are very smooth and this loom is really an eye catching! These are some of the bad boys in Dr. Who, Daleks and Cybermen to name a few!
