One of our most popular looms, we even keep one as a demo loom in the 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. Both come in a sturdy box that has a carry handle and can double as a carry case. 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.
15" Weaving Width
At 5.5" wider than the 10" Cricket, the 15" Cricket is still compact enough to take with you easily. The 15" weaving width offers more flexibility in your choice of weaving projects. Uses the same reeds as the 15" Flip folding rigid heddle loom. Additional 15" cricket shuttles and 15" cricket pick-up sticks are available.
