Louet David 70-27.5" 8 shaft Floor Loom Louet David 90-35" 8 shaft Floor Loom Louet Spring 110-43" 8 shaft Floor Loom
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 “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.
