This Rigid Heddle Loom by Beka is an excellent, user friendly, entry level loom if you've been thinking you want to get into weaving but don't want to invest a lot of money or space in your home. The most intimidating part of setting up a weaving project is the warp, so Beka does the first one for you! The complete instructions will walk you through setting up future warps with no trouble. With the small footprint these looms occupy, they can slide under a couch or onto a closet shelf when not in use
This is where Beka began and the Original Beka Looms are still as versatile and as ever. Over 40 years of experience stands behind each handcrafted loom. The SG series loom is easy to learn on, and capable of performing the most complex weaves. Designed as an extremely versatile, light weight tool, it is also a great portable loom.
Perfect for both new and experienced weavers, features include: Sturdy Beam Teeth for fast set up, rotating beams that accommodate projects up to five yards long, and reliable ratchet and pawl tensioning. Available in 20 inch or 24 inch widths, each loom is packaged with one 10 dent heddle, two stick shuttles, one pickup stick, a pair of heddle blocks, a threading tool (# 8 steel crochet hook) and complete instructions. SG series looms are made from Cherry wood and finished with Danish Oil.
The SG series looms have a wide "shed block" that will easily accept multiple heddles .... No other brand offers this option in this price range. There are no separate attachments required. Heddles simply rest on top of and/or below the shed blocks. Tension from the warp holds them in place. You can use up to three heddles at the same time with our standard blocks.
20 = ~24” x 23-1/4” and 4 pounds
24 = ~28” x 23-1/4” and 5 pounds
