The newest dobby weaving loom from Lout: 8 Shafts, 70 cm, 90 cm and 110 cm weaving width (27.5", 35 and 43).

A dobby mechanism (programmable shaft selector) is an alternative for the tie-ups to the treadles on a standard hand weaving loom. Looms with 16 or more shafts need a dobby mechanism, because it becomes unmanageable to operate such a loom with treadles.

The successful introduction of the Megado dobby loom in 1998, and the reaction of weavers showed us that a dobby is not only necessary for a loom with many shafts, but it makes weaving so much more comfortable. Of course this also goes for looms with less than 16 shafts.

An 8-shaft jack loom requires an average of 40 tie-ups on the treadles. A countermarche requires 80 tie-ups. This needs to be done in a very uncomfortable position. With a dobby loom, you can say good-bye to the tie-ups! An investment in a Lout dobby loom will allow you many years of comfortable weaving.

The new Octado has a similar operating method as the familiar Megado. This means a big countermarche shed and a very light treadling action. Again, easy on the weaver.

The Octado can be operated with a mechanical dobby, or with an electronic interface. The electronic interface works with most popular computer weaving software.

The Octado can be operated with a mechanical dobby, or with an electronic interface. The electronic interface works with most popular computer weaving software, includeing Fiberworks PCW, Patternland, PixieLoom, Weavemaker, Proweave and Weave It.
