The Leclerc Compact loom is a jack loom with a 24 inch weaving width. it is a light but solid floor loom, and easily movable with your weaving attached, since it has wheels that engage when the loom is folded. The Compact is a great loom at a great price!
The Leclerc Compact is built as a 4 harness loom with room for 4 more (4 Now 4 Later) with six treadles for easy tie-up, and can be converted into an 8 shaft loom. Just add 4 shafts (and 4 treadles) later. This built-in option alone costs extra if you order other similar brand looms. Or choose the 8 harness version with with ten treadles, so you have all the pattern freedom now.
Leclerc has enhanced the Compact Loom with a set of 4 wheels to make moving the loom easier. The wheels are mounted on the feet allowing the loom to be easily moved simply by folding up the loom. When all four legs of the loom are sitting on the floor, the wheels are raised off the ground so that the loom will not roll when weaving.
