The Cricket loom is compact, capable, and cute! Available in 10" or 15" weaving widths (only 15" width is currently available to order), this loom is made from high-quality maple plywood and hard maple and left for you to finish as desired. Each Cricket comes with an 8-dent reed; additional reeds in a variety of dent counts are also available for separate purchase. How does a rigid heddle loom make weaving fun and easy? When the heddle is moved from neutral to the up or down positions it creates a shed, or opening, where the weft can pass through. This makes weaving much quicker than picking up each yarn by hand as you would do with a frame loom.
Cricket loom options:
10" Weaving Width
At only 13" x 18" x 6" and just under 4 pounds, this loom is easy to take along anywhere. A great choice for a brand new weaver of any age.
10" Cricket looms are currently unavailable to order - Schacht hopes to have them available again this fall.
15" Weaving Width
This wider loom offers more flexibility in choosing weaving projects while also remaining portable. It also uses the same reeds as the 15" Flip folding rigid heddle loom interchangeably. (The 15" width is used for our in-store Beginning Rigid Heddle Weaving classes.)
Cricket loom package includes:
Loom in your choice of 10" or 15" weaving width
