The newest Sample It mini loom is 16" wide! There's also the ultra-compact 10" wide model. Both have built-in double heddle capability, so all you need for double weave is a second reed!
I'm totally in love with this ultra portable wee little loom from Ashford and strongly recommend it for gift/sales/holiday production.
Some of the awesome things you can make with a wee loom: scarves, linen face clothes, woold bags to felt around soap, trivets, pot holders, drink warmers, guitar straps, belts and sashes, eyeglass cases an small bags, this ingenious shoulder bag: http://donisdelis.blogspot.com/2009/01/little-tutorial.html
It will help you burn through your stash, and is especially awesome for handspun. You can even make long strips to seam into beautiful blankets--anything up to 10" wide--in a fraction of the time of knitting. And because it's so little, it's wildly portable--weave in the park, on the bus, in front of the TV, etc.
The first image is the 10", followed by the 16", the 10" warped with 2 heddles, an older discontinued 8" stained, with a project woven on it, dimensions, bag.
This unintimidating little loom is perfect for the beginner (I can vouch because the 2 projects shown here were the first ones I did entirely myself, with no outside help--not perfect, but completely presentable!). If you're a knitter flirting with weaving, this cheap, portable loom is the ticket.
It's super easy to use. Watch the video & you're ready to go: http://www.ashford.co.nz/newsite/tutorials/video-tutorial-weaving-on-the-sampleit-loom
It comes unfinished, so you can stain it however you like (the last photo shows my own loom, with a dark stain on the sides, and all the parts that touch fiber left natural. Assembly takes about 10 minutes and is a piece of cake. You'll need a screwdriver and a candle (don't skip the candle--waxing the screws makes everything much easier to screw together).
A canvas carry bag is also available.
