Jane 8/16 shafts


Jane was originally only an 8 shaft loom, however in 2023, a 16 shaft version was introduced. Today, the loom is available as 8 or 16 shafts and the 8 shaft model is expandable to 16 shafts. The original 8 shaft only model remains available while supplies last.

Jane has been designed after consultation with weavers, at the same time using successful techniques from its predecessor, the Kombo. There is no cord wear, since cords run over rollers and the overhead beater stays out of the way when throwing the shuttle. Jane is made of lacquered beech and has a built in raddle. The loom is partly assembled and comes with:

  • a large shed
  • Shuttle race
  • Smooth overhead beater
  • carrying handle (J50) and protective feet to rest on
  • Harnesses that snap back to rest position
  • partially assembled padded travel padded travel bag
  • partially assembled padded travel padded travel bag
  • apron bars, warp sticks and lease sticks
  • heddles 800/1200 (50/70)
  • metric reed 40-10
  • Easy to fold, clean toggle action

Jane 16 

The loom is available with 8 shafts, expandable to 16 shafts or straight with 16 shafts. This is a unique feature for table looms with 16 shafts. The Jane is the most compact 8+ shaft table loom on the market that folds easily. This makes weavers even more likely to choose the Louet Jane loom.
