Card / Inkle / Tablet weaving loom - 100 percent maple wood, complete with handcrafted maple 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 maple as well as the dowels!
This loom is a medium size - with a shed distance of 11 inches from peg to peg, weaving shed around 12 inches. The loom is 10.25 inches tall, 19.5 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 wax feed. The wax feed both feeds the wood, and brings out the natural beauty of the maple. There will be no wood stain to affect your warp.
This loom will allow bands of up to approximately 1 inch in width to be woven - more if you choose the inkle method! The warp length is variable depending on what you choose to weave, with a maximum length of 90 inches or 2.5 yards.
**If you are a brand new weaver, or had some frustration starting out I offer a warp kit on all my looms. I will work with you to select a warp for you loom, dress it and send it to you ready to weave! The kit includes the warp, a beater, full how to weave instructions and the cards needed to weave your selected pattern (card weaving). The Inkle weaving kit comes with your loom dressed with the colors you request, a beater and full instructions. You can either add the variation on your order or add the separate warp kit offered to all buyers in my listings.
