SMALL WEAVING LOOMS: 4, 8 & 16 SHAFT TABLE LOOMS
at Apple Hollow Farm


Table looms provide a way for both new and experienced weavers to try out weaving without the expense of a larger floor loom. We offer selections for those who wish to explore weaving on a budget, and who are looking for much more future potential in their weaving than offered on rigid heddle or frame looms. Many beginners choose 4 harness (4 shaft) table looms from the start, rather than beginning with a rigid heddle loom that they later find may not meet their creative requirements. This page features 4 or 8 harness table looms which work with hand levers rather than foot treadles, and even a 16 harness loom for complex weaving. Many of these looms can be converted to floor looms with the stand and treadle options offered. Professional, detailed weaving can be accomplished with these looms, as well as very simple plain weave.

Ashford 8 harness table weaving loom

ASHFORD TABLE LOOMS, 4 TO 8 HARNESSES WITH 16" TO 32" WIDTHS Ashford looms are supplied as kits, as are most of Ashford's products. Choose from 4 harness or 8 harness kit looms, in weaving widths of 16, 24, and 32 inches. (The 4 +4 add-on harness kit is no longer made.) Popular because they are portable, easy to use and so versatile, the Ashford table looms are in demand with both beginner and experienced weavers. The castle folds flat, even with your weaving in place, making them ideal for taking to workshops or guild meetings. The overhead beater, with automatic bounce back, gives a wonderful shed and even beating. Levers are within easy reach for comfortable weaving. Each shaft can be lifted simply and quickly and is independent enabling a wide variety of patterns to be woven. The solid Silver Beech hard wood is lacquered for long-lasting good looks. Non-slip rubber feet give extra stability. Swedish stainless steel 10 dent reed, lightweight Texsolv heddles (320, 480 or 640 dependent on loom width) are included, and the loom also comes with cross and warp sticks, reed, heddle hooks, 2 shuttles and Ashford's Learn to Weave on the Table loom booklet. The optional stand-and-treadle kit (with 4 treadles) folds flat and has two shelves on the sides. Click on the image at left to see the loom on the stand/treadle kit.
