Tapestry weaving is considered by many to be the most personal of all weaving. Among the simplest of looms, the Schacht 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, Schacht provides four heddle bars so that beginning weavers can also experiment with 4-shaft pattern weaving.
To keep the warp tension even throughout your weaving, the Schacht tapestry loom has a tension beam with thumbscrews on the end which allow for easy adjustment. Available in 18" and 25" weaving widths. The continuous warping system allows a 60" long warp to be put directly on the loom without using any other warping tools. Shown with optional A frame stand below.
Designed for use with the portable Schacht tapestry looms, the 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 looms.
