Schacht Cricket Loom
AVAILABLE IN 2 SIZES: 10″ or 15″
The Cricket Loom is compact, capable, and cute! The Cricket is available in a 10″ weaving width, and in April 2012, will also be available in a 15″ weaving width. The Cricket is made of high quality apple ply and hard maple and left unfinished. Each Cricket comes with an 8-dent reed (sorry, no substitutions). We also have 5-, 10- and 12-dent reeds. Included are a threading hook, warping peg, table clamps, two shuttles, and two balls of yarn.
10″ Weaving Width
At only 11″ x 18″ x 6″ and just under four pounds, it’s easy to take along. The 10″ weaving width gives plenty of room to make a variety of projects without sacrificing portability. It’s an ideal size for a new weaver of any age. As of April 2010, the Cricket has been redesigned with the ratchet gear and dog on the outside of the loom to make it even easier to adjust tension. Additional 10″ cricket reeds, shuttles and cricket pick-up sticks are available.
15″ Weaving Width
At 5.5″ wider than the 10″ Cricket, the 15″ Cricket is still compact enough to take with you easily. The 15″ weaving width offers more flexibility in your choice of weaving projects. Uses the same reeds as the 15″ Flip folding rigid heddle loom. Shipping is expected to start in April 2012. Additional 15″ cricket reeds, shuttles and pick-up sticks are available.
Also available – Cricket Loom Bag – colourful fabric and sturdy. Outside pocket for accessories. Limited edition artisan product.
Stand for either the 10″ or 15″ Cricket Looms may be special ordered.
