Schacht Inkle Loom
~with Belt Shuttle
The inkle loom is a loom every weaver should have. It's great for
weaving belts and bands. This compact loom is also a favorite in school
settings because it is easy to set up and quick to produce finished
belts. The Schacht inkle loom is built with years of heavy use in mind.
It is open on one side for quick and uncomplicated warping. Hardwood
dowels are pressed deep into the hard maple frame. The loom will hold a
variety of warp sizes up tp 4 1/2 inches wide and 8 1/2 feet long. This
loom is fully assembled and finished and includes a Belt Shuttle, detailed instructions for warping and beginning to weave.
It's a great loom to hold your cards for card weaving also.
Order extra Inkle (aka 'Belt') shuttles separately.
*Instead of making your own heddles, you can take the 8 5/8" (green ties) heddles, cut them off one-at-a-time, then follow the Schacht instructions for using double heddles. DO NOT thread through the eye of the heddle.We'll order one for you.
