The Delta is a modern parallel counter march loom perfect for
taller weavers or weavers looking for a loom with back hinged
treadles. The Delta is
easily recognizable as the head of the Louet line of floor looms. It is
comfortable, robust and technologically advanced, but above all a weaver's
loom. Warp tension can be adjusted by fine increments to insure the
tension is just the way you want it. The floating breast beam insures
tension is returned to exactly the same tension as you had before you
advanced the cloth.
Tie ups are easy. Every treadle is tied to every harness which means you only have to depress one treadle at a time. All treadles work the same way across the full width of the loom because of the parallel system. The Delta's treadles are hinged from the back allowing for a very light weight treadling action. Also, all lams are horizontal which makes changing tie-ups quick and easy. For individual comfort, blocks are available to adjust treadle height.
Harnesses are adjustable to allow you to create slack in the heddles for easier threading and to tighten them for weaving
The Delta floor loom is made of plantation grown ash and is finished with a double coat of clear semi-gloss lacquer. The Delta 110 has a weaving width of 110cm (43 3/8”) and comes equipped with a built-in raddle and shelf, stainless steel reed 40-10 (metric), 1200 (Delta 110) or 1400 (Delta 130) Texsolv heddles (330mm), tie-up and lease sticks and 16 warp sticks.
Are you a tall? The Louet Delta is a robust loom built with the taller weaver in mind. A full leg extension is possible when treadling and this makes this floor loom ideal if you are 6' or taller. If you are shorter you can get treadle block to makes weaving on this loom easier for you. (please contact us)
