One of my most popular looms, I even keep one as a demo loom in my shop. Schacht looms are of the HIGHEST Quality. Customers LOVE this little loom. Check out some feedback at end of listing. Always in stock and ships immediately!
The very Portable Cricket Loom is compact, capable, and darn right cute! The Cricket is available in a 10" or 15" weaving widths. Great for taking along with you on vacation or weekends away. The Cricket is made of high quality apple ply and hard maple and is left unfinished. Each Cricket comes with an 8 dent reed. We also have 5, 10 and 12 dent reeds available as well as all weaving/warping tools and accessories. Included are a threading hook, warping peg, table clamps, two shuttles, and two balls of yarn.
Both the 10 and 15 inch Crickets come with an 8-dent heddle, as the worsted weight yarns are the most popular weaving weight, but this style/recipe works equally well with the 10 dent (which has more slots/holes per inch and yields a slightly lighter weight fabric) and of course with the variable dent reed. Schacht also provides some yummy patterns on their site.
10" Weaving Width
At only 11" x 18" x 6" and just under four pounds, it's easy to take along. The 10" weaving width gives plenty of room to make a variety of projects without sacrificing portability. It's an ideal size for a new weaver of any age. As of April 2010, the Cricket has been redesigned with the ratchet gear and dog on the outside of the loom to make it even easier to adjust tension. Additional 10" cricket shuttles and 10" cricket pick-up sticks are available.
Schacht's Cricket Loom Stands are sturdy and convenient if you want to move your weaving project off the table and over to a corner when not in use. Sold at discounted price when purchased in combination with the loom here.
The Cricket Loom Bag makes your Cricket and other small looms convenient to carry. The Cricket fits sideways into the bag with room for accessories.
