Have you been wanting to get in on the incredible fun of Inkle Weaving? This is Schacht's New Inkle Loom Set that comes with the Belt Shuttle (older models did not) and Complete Instructions for Inkle Weaving. These Heirloom quality Inkles are THE Sturdiest, and Strongest Inkle looms I carry or have even seen anywhere. This can and will withstand generations of use if properly cared for.
The Inkle Loom is a loom every weaver should have. Incredibly versatile, it is great for weaving belts and bands. Inkle looms are great for start-up weaving programs because they require little additional equipment, are easy to use and understand, and are easily stored.
This is a great price for a full size Inkle Loom. Schacht's Inkle loom is built with years of heavy use in mind. It has one open side for ease of warping. The tension bar has an easy grip knob for adjusting the warp tension during weaving. Warps can be up to 4.5" wide and 8.5' long. The Inkle Loom is made of hard maple and left unfinished. Measures 7" x 9 1/2" x 31". Would ship by USPS or UPS Ground. I also carry extra belt shuttles which are great for multi-colored projects, listed here: Because of its size and weight, shipping is quite high. It may ship USPS Priority or FedEx, depending on cost.
