Tapestry weaving is considered by many to be the most personal of all weaving. Among the simplest of looms, the tapestry loom holds a continuous warp under tension, allowing the weaver to see all of the warp at once. Sheds are formed using heddle bars and string heddles. While only two heddle bars are needed for traditional tapestry weaving, we provide four heddle bars so that beginning weavers can also experiment with 4-shaft pattern weaving.
To keep the warp tension even throughout your weaving, our tapestry loom has a tension beam with thumbscrews on the end which allow for easy adjustment. Available in 18" and 25" weaving widths, our continuous warping system allows a 60" long warp to be put directly on the loom without using any other warping tools.
The A-Frame Stand is designed for use with our portable tapestry looms. The A-Frame Stand inexpensively answers the question of how to hold the loom upright on the table top or the floor while weaving. The adjustable side arms let you vary the angle, and may be folded up for storage. The A-Frame stand measures 2"x 2" x 20".
The Tapestry Loom can also be fitted to our Trestle Floor Stand which is shown with the Schacht Rigid Heddle Loom and measures 10" x 30" x 18".
We make three styles of tapestry beaters: single-ended, double-ended, and a weighted single-ended. All are made of hard maple and have a smooth Danish oil finish. The wooden teeth are set at five per inch.
The weighted beater has about five ounces of lead weight inserted into the end to provide more impact for tighter weaving.
