Tapestry weaving is considered by many to be the most personal of all weaving. Among the simplest of looms, the tapestry loom holds a continuous warp under tension, allowing the weaver to see all of the warp at once. Sheds are formed using heddle bars and string heddles. While only two heddle bars are needed for traditional tapestry weaving, we provide four heddle bars so that beginning weavers can also experiment with 4-shaft pattern weaving.
To keep the warp tension even throughout your weaving, the tapestry loom has a tension beam with thumbscrews on the end which allow for easy adjustment. Available in 18″ and 25″ weaving widths, Schacht’s continuous warping system allows a 60″ long warp to be put directly on the loom without using any other warping tools.
