The Louet David is a compact floor loom that takes less floor space, but still has many of the same features of a large floor loom. The David loom uses an ingenious but simple to understand system of springs and pulleys, which produces a generous wide shed with remarkably light treadling, due to a pull system that "assists" the weaver when treadling.
The Louet David floor loom has a built-in raddle (super easy to use for back to front warping) and a tool shelf on top of the castle, perfect for shuttles, bobbins etc. It comes standard with eight harnesses and ten treadles. The tie-up is made to the metal parallel lams, which can be tied either singly or in combinations, allowing for unbalanced weaves not possible on the usual kind of sinking shed loom.
The David loom is made of lacquered beech and is partially assembled, the rest is easy to put together, following step by step instructions. The Louet David comes complete with 800 “Texsolv” heddles, a stainless steel 10 dent reed, 2 lease sticks and 16 warp sticks, plus instructions. The Louet David 2 loom now also comes with a friction brake.
Your choice of David 70, 27.5" weaving width or David 90, 35" weaving width.
