Inkle Inkle looms are great for start-up weaving programs because they require little additional equipment, are easy to use and understand, and are easily stored.

Please note: This loom does not come with a shuttle. Please order it separately.
Tapestry weaving is considered by many to be the most personal of all weaving. Among the simplest of looms, the tapestry loom holds a continuous warp under tension, allowing the weaver to see all of the warp at once. Sheds are formed using heddle bars and string heddles. While only two heddle bars are needed for traditional tapestry weaving, we provide four heddle bars so that beginning weavers can also experiment with 4-shaft pattern weaving. To keep the warp tension even throughout your weaving, our tapestry loom has a tension beam with thumbscrews on the end which allow for easy adjustment. Available in 18" and 25" weaving widths, our continuous warping system allows a 60" long warp to be put directly on the loom without using any other warping tools. Shown with optional stand below.
Designed for use with our portable tapestry looms, our A-Frame Stand inexpensively answers the question of how to hold the loom upright on the table top or the floor while weaving. The adjustable side arms let you vary the angle, and may be folded up for storage. Fits both sizes of Schacht Tapestry loom.
Table looms are great for classroom use, workshops, sampling, and small projects. They are ideal for learning about four- and eight-shaft pattern weaving, since the direct tie-up through the hand levers allows for infinite experimentation. Schacht table looms are expertly crafted of the finest hard maple and built for maximum structural stability. Schacht uses fine-toothed nylon gears on both the warp and cloth beams, which allow precise tension control. The front-mounted levers make shaft selection easy to reach with each hand. Front-mounted levers also make it easy to see at a glance which shafts are raised. Schacht table looms are available in three weaving widths-15", 20", and 25"- with four or eight shafts. The Schacht table looms come with a carbon steel reed in your choice of 6, 8, 10, 12, or 15 dents. (Please choose one) Flat steel heddles, two apron rods, and three lease sticks are also included. A double back beam is available for all table loom widths.
