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 3/4 inches from peg to peg, weaving shed around 11 inches. The loom is 10 inches tall, 24 inches long, pegs are 4.75 inches length. It sits well in the lap for weaving - but can also be set on a table. This is the new double sided loom with a removable side! Remove the off side for easy warping, then put it on for weaving! For those working on larger bands, or folks that like to weave with a lot of tension; this is the loom for you. The pegs are 5/8ths diameter and are made of matching hardwood. The right side of the loom is 3/4 inch thick and the off side is 3/4 inch thick.
This loom, pegs and tensioners are REAL cherry; no stains here! I only use the highest quality, cabinetry hardwoods for luxurious, heirloom quality tools. You will not see the off side pegs through your loom either; both sides are clean and smooth. The finish one the loom is a simple Howard's feed and wax wipe. The Howard's 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 a custom moon loom- all edges are very smooth and this loom is really an eye catching! This design really brings out the natural elegance and beauty of the wood - really showing off gentle, glowing curves and waves of the wood grain and brings about it's fame. The loom is finished to an 800 grit sandpaper and is silky soft to the touch, yet strong enough to handle travel any where you might go!
This loom will allow bands of up to approximately 3 inches in width to be woven (if card weaving, this will depend on how thick your cards are) - more if you choose the inkle method. The warp length is variable depending on what you choose to warp, with a maximum length of 4.80- 5 yards (complete ward as a 3 inch take up).
