Erica table loom - more information

Erica is a compact table loom with 30 cm (11 ¾“) weaving. It is an attractive alternative to a rigid heddle loom: it is easier to operate, the warp tension is more even, it has a large shed of 4.5 cm (1 ¾”) and you have flexibility in the number of threads per cm. The option to expand it to 3 or 4 shafts will make it an even more interesting alternative.

The loom is made of unlacquered beech and laminated birch. It comes complete with built-in raddle, stainless steel reed (40/10), 200 Texsolv heddles (150 mm) and lease- and tie-up sticks. The folded size is 55 x 48 x 16 cm (22” x 19 1/8” x 6 3/8”) and it weighs 3.5 kg (7¾ lb).

The new loom will be available end of 2017. The introduction retail price incl. 21% VAT is € 249. The extension kit per shaft costs € 29 incl. 21% VAT, excl. heddles.

Book Weaving on 3 shafts
Our new table loom is named after Erica de Ruiter. For over 40 years she has done research on weaving with three shafts: twill, huck, M’s and O’s, honeycomb, thick and thin, padded weave, Krokbragd, supplementary warps, block weaves, color-and-weave, and much more.

The renewed and extended edition of her book “Weaving on 3 shafts” is in full color and bilingual in Dutch and English. The book contains traditional weave structures for any skill. From simple designs for beginners to extremely complex techniques for the more experienced. We have the book available for € 37.50 incl. 6% VAT.
