We are very excited about this direct tie-up 4-shaft loom, the little Wolf Pup. Here is a small loom you can easily take anywhere with you. The 18” weaving width is ideal for workshops and for all those other narrow projects. The height makes it possible to use a standard household chair with this loom – a special loom bench is not necessary!
Schacht has used the same sturdy X-frame, bolt and barrel-nut construction for the Wolf Pup as they use for their other Wolf Looms. They also used many of the same components: steel hub friction brake, brake release foot pedal, aluminum harness channels, and an attached beater pin. The loom comes with stainless steel heddle bars and a stainless steel reed (choice of 6, 8, 10, 12, 15 or 20 dent), and 300 heddles inserted eye heddles.
In the process of developing this product, they also came up with a couple of nifty enhancements like the automatic fold-up lock button and the Treadle Tracker, a “mini clipboard” for holding your threading and treadling diagrams, as well as the new “quick-release” removable beam for easy warping.. The simple and elegant direct tie-up system they used was designed by F.C. Wood of Waterford, New York, who started building the Dorset Loom in 1956.
The Wolf Pup folds up to a depth of only 16 inches. The attached wheels automatically engage when the loom is in the folded position. The Wolf Pup weighs just 38 pounds and is UPS-able!
The Wolf Pup is a direct-tie up loom – one treadle is tied to one shaft. If you prefer the ability to tie more than one shaft to a treadle, please see the Wolf Pup LT.
