Older Harrisville Floor Loom 36" 4 Harness 6 Treadles - still the same great loom. A few scuffs and dings and a bit of water staining on the legs at $500, only a fraction of the new price ($2600). New to weaving? Lessons available. Includes two stick shuttles, pic up stick, lease sticks and one reed.
Harrisville's most popular loom (formally called the T/6) has a full 36 inch weaving width, floating lamm system and quick multiple tie-up system using "snap chains". This portable loom folds from 32 inches to 13" and weighs only 70 lbs. Can be folded with the warp intact for storage.
The 4 harness, 6 treadle combination makes this both convenient and versatile. Complex treading patterns are simple to set up and easy to weave. It has a friction brake for excellent tension control and an adjustable beater to accommodate reeds of different heights and widths. The suspended harnesses make the jack-action light, quiet, smooth, and rhythmical.
