The Cricket Loom is compact, capable, and cute! The Cricket is available in a 10" or 15" weaving widths. It is made of high-quality apple ply and hard maple and is left unfinished. Each Cricket comes with an 8-dent reed (sorry, no substitutions). We also have 5-, 10- and 12-dent reeds. Included are a threading hook, warping peg, table clamps, two shuttles, and two balls of yarn.
10" Weaving Width
At only 13" wide × 18" long × 6" high 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.
(Note: we do not normally stock the 10" Cricket but will gladly order and have it direct shipped to you.)
15" Weaving Width
At 18.5" wide x 18" long x 6" high, it's 5.5" wider than the 10" Cricket, yet still compact enough to take with you easily. The 15" weaving width offers more flexibility in your choice of weaving projects. It uses the same reeds as the 15" Flip folding rigid heddle loom. Additional 15" cricket shuttles and 15" cricket pick-up sticks are available.
Consider getting the stand for greater ease of us and portabiliy.
