Flip, Schacht’s folding rigid heddle loom, is comfortable, compact, sturdy, and a pleasure to weave on. Designed for high performance, this loom folds in a jiffy for storage or transport.
The Flip 15″, 20″ , 25″ and 30″ are in stock and ready for immediate shipping.
Weave in comfort. Choose three different weaving modes: use the rear leg for hooking to a table edge, clamp it to a table for stand-up weaving, or install it on our convenient trestle stand.
Warp in a flash. Included with Flip, the folding loom, are clamps and a warping peg for direct-loom warping. We include instructions for both direct and pre-measuring methods.
The top cross braces allow long warps, up to 5-6 yards (depending on weight and winding paper), to be wound on the beams without impacting the size of the shed.
Fine-toothed nylon ratchets provide precise tension control. The conveniently located heddle blocks on the sides of the loom hold the rigid heddle in the up, down, or neutral position. The heddle, available in 5, 8, 10 and 12 dents per inch, is made of durable ABS plastic, with large eyes and slots.
Flip is ideal for plain weaves and pick-up patterns. Our exclusively-designed two heddle capabilities make sense of 2-heddle weaving for the first time.
Flip is available in 15”, 20”, 25″, and 30” weaving widths, and includes an 8 dent reed, warping peg, 2 shuttles, 2 clamps, threading hook, and complete warping and weaving instructions. (if you would like a different dent reed, we can do that as well. You just have to let us know in the order notes, or email us with the preference)
On the 30″ and 25″ looms, the tensioning gears are on both sides of the loom. This allows for more even tension, even on a full width warp.
Made in the USA, of hard maple with a hand-rubbed oil finish.
