That is particularly important with floor looms when there are so many variables.  Here's a few questions to ask yourself that if you email me I may ask you to help you find a good fit. 1. Is space/size a concern? 2. Do you need it to be semi-movable? 3. What kind of heddles do you want? 4. Is easy treadling necessary? 5. Is noise a concern? 6.What do you want to make?

Raddles help keep a warp spread evenly as it is wound onto the warp beam.  Ours have built-in clamps and can be attached to either the loom's back beam or the shuttle race of the beater.  The raddles come with plated pins inserted every inch and with holes drilled every half inch with enough extra pins included should you prefer half-inch spacing.  Our Wolf Pup, Baby Wolf and Mighty Wolf  Raddles come with special mounting brackets for the Wolf loom diagonal beams, as well as clamps for square beams or shuttle races.

We keep limited stock here in the store. If its out of stock, you can order and it will ship from the factory in 2-4 weeks.

Here is a little loom you can easily take anywhere with you. The 18” weaving width is ideal for workshops and for all those other narrow projects.

We’ve used the same sturdy X-frame, bolt and barrel-nut construction for our Wolf Pup looms as we use for our other Wolf Looms. We also use many of the same components: steel hub friction brake, brake release foot pedal, aluminum harness channels, and an attached beater pin. The loom comes with stainless steel heddle bars and a stainless steel reed (choice of 6, 8, 10, 12 or 15 dent), and 300 wire inserted-eye heddles. The simple and elegant direct tie-up system we use was first designed by F.C. Wood of Waterford, New York, who started building the Dorset Loom in 1956.

The Wolf Pup has a direct tie-up system - each harness is tied to a single treadle. This makes for a simple, easy-to-use loom. Like its bigger siblings the Baby Wolf and Mighty Wolf looms, the Wolf Pup LT features jacks and lamms that allow any harness to be tied to any of its six treadles, in whatever combination your weave structure requires.

The Wolf Pup and Wolf Pup LT both come with the Treadle Tracker, a “mini clipboard” for holding your threading and treadling diagrams.

The Wolf Pup folds up to a depth of only 16 inches. The attached wheels automatically engage when the loom is in the folded position. The Wolf Pup can be sent via UPS.

Schacht Loom - Baby Wolf - Photo shows the 8 shaft model Schacht Standard Jack Loom - 36" - Low Castle (the actual look of the loom will vary depending on the options you choose) Schacht Standard Jack Loom - 36" - High Castle (The actual appearance of the loom will vary depending on the options you choose)
Our Baby Wolf loom is the most uncompromised small loom available today. It has all the advantages of portability while maintaining the best big loom features. If compactness and portability are what you are looking for, you’ll be interested in this thoughtfully engineered loom.

The weaving width of the Baby Wolf is 26". You have your choice of four or eight shafts, or you can choose our Four Now-Four Later* model which allows you to expand from four shafts to eight shafts at any time. The X-frame design is exceptionally stable and can be easily folded to a depth of 18".

The adjustable beater allows the position of the shuttle race to be raised or lowered if necessary. The Baby Wolf employs a friction brake on the warp beam which lets you advance the warp smoothly.

*"Four Now - Four Later" (4N4L) is an eight harness loom shipped with only four harnesses installed, but with the capacity to add an additional four harnesses. You can purchase a kit to add four harnesses at a later time. 4N4L looms are shipped with all the heddles, tie-ups and other items normally included with an eight harness loom.

This comes with inserted eye heddles.

The Schacht Standard floor loom comes in two styles: The Standard Low Castle and The Standard High Castle. Though both looms take up identical floor space, the lower profile of the Low Castle model appears visually smaller. A High Castle loom includes a storage tray and holes drilled in the top of the castle uprights for the swivel pin of an extension lamp, otherwise the looms function the same. Both the Standard Low Castle and the Standard High Castle looms are available in 36" and 46" wide weaving widths.

All Standard floor looms may be ordered with eight or Four Now-Four Later* shaft options. The number of shafts you choose will depend on the kind of weaving you intend to do. Though most weave structures can be woven on four shafts, additional shafts increase your pattern options extensively. If you have a keen interest in pattern drafting and weave structures, eight shafts will allow you to fully develop this interest.

The Schacht Standard floor loom has an under-slung jack mechanism to raise the shafts. The jacks pivot from two points equidistant from the center and lift the shafts by pushing up on the center point.  We employ a parallel lamm system which gives our looms a light treadling action.  Because of this parallel lamm, it isn't necessary to adjust the tie-up cords.

Our tie-up system is quick and easy to use. Pre-measured nylon tie-up cords hang from the lamms and are attached to a treadle by sliding the appropriate cords into the treadle slot. This makes changing tie-ups very fast.

Other special features of our Standard floor looms include: friction reducing aluminum shaft channels, a back beam which folds with or without a warp on the loom, removable back and breast beams, and an adjustable open-sided beater. Our braking system employs a ratchet and dog on the cloth beam and a friction brake on the warp beam. This combination give you precise tension control at all times.

The David, a unique sinking shed jack loom, has become a popular small floor loom on today’s market. Weaving on this loom gives you a real appreciation for the word balance. “Balance” is the key in this design. Louet engineers’ skillful design has created a sturdy, well-balanced and easy to treadle loom.
Technically, the David is a compactly constructed floor loom that takes less floor space, but still has many of the same features of a large floor loom. The “David” uses an ingenious but simple to understand system of springs and pulleys, which produces a generous shed with remarkably light treadling. The tie-up is made to the metal parallel lams, which can be tied either singly or in combinations, allowing for unbalanced weaves not possible on the usual kind of sinking shed loom, the counterbalance type.
The David has a built-in raddle and shelf and comes standard with eight harnesses and ten treadles. The David 70 has a 70cm (27 5/8”) weaving width.
The David loom is made of lacquered beech, and is easy to assemble, following step by step instructions (written by Sharon Alderman). Included in the standard eight harness version are 10 treadles, 800 “Texsolv” heddles for both David 70 and David 90, a stainless steel reed 40-10 (10 e.p.i.) with 12 cm (5”) inside height, 2 lease sticks and 16 warp sticks, plus instructions.

The David now comes with the new beater. The only one that is pictured has an overhead beater, the new ones are much like the Spring's and are attached at the floor. If you have an older David there is a conversion kit.

The Louet 24 shaft Magic Dobby Loom. Made of lacquered beech, this loom follows in the long tradition of high quality equipment designed by the clever engineers in Holland. The Magic loom is a combination of popular features from other Louet looms, many unique innovative ideas, and the well known dobby loom concept.

The Magic loom was designed with several purposes in mind. First of all, we wanted a multi-harness loom that was more affordable than some of the alternatives. We also wanted a small loom that was portable. Portability was necessary because we were designing a workshop loom. Can you imagine walking into a workshop with a 24 shaft loom? Finally, for those weavers who already have a large multi-harness loom, this would be a perfect sampler loom.

The Louet “Spring” loom is one of the most innovative cleverly designed floor looms on the market today. It uses the Parallel countermarch system for the harnesses and lams, which is easy to use and simple to tie-up.
An exclusive feature to this loom is the patented moving breast beam controlled by springs. The breast beam is attached to the loom in such a way that it is free to move toward the harnesses when the shed is made and then back toward the weaver when the shed is closed again. The distance between the breast beam and the back beam actually changes during weaving. With this system a larger shed can be obtained with less tension increase in the warp and less effort from the weaver. The advantages of this system are especially evident as you near the end of the warp. Even when the end of the warp is very close to the harnesses, a good shed can be made, thus saving yards and yards of wasted warp over the life of your loom.
The moving breast beam also brings on exactly the same warp tension each time the warp is advanced. The design of the loom includes a built-in raddle on top of the castle and a storage shelf for keeping everything you need within easy reach.
The heddles and tie-up cords are of the Swedish Texsolv system, which make them quite strong and non-stretching. The Spring loom is available in your choice of 2 weaving widths:  90cm (35 3/8”) or 110cm (43 1/4”). The “Spring” is made of lacquered beech and comes ready-to-assemble with clear instructions and tools.

Another great dobby weaving loom from Louët: 8 Shafts, 70 cm, 90 cm and 110 cm weaving width (28", 36” and 44”).

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-shafts jack loom requires an average of 40 tie-ups on the treadles. A counter marche 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 Louët 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 counter marche 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, includeing Fiberworks PCW, Patternland, PixieLoom, Weavemaker, Proweave and Weave It. The Octado interface has a 2 year warranty against manufacturer's defects.

A full list of optional equipment is available: Bench, second warp beam, sectional warp beam and flying shuttle.

The middle section of the Octado (where all the shafts are) comes completely assembled. A detailed instruction manual will help you to complete the assembly without any problems.
