Looking for a loom to learn to weave on? Then look no further than the Cricket from Schacht

Schacht Cricket Rigid Heddle Weaving Loom

The Cricket Loom is in our opinion the best rigid heddle loom on the market for the beginner weaver.  Available in two sizes and starting from just £150, this is a sturdy wee loom, well made and thoughtfully designed with the weaver in mind - all as you would expect from Schacht. 

The Cricket is available in a 10″ (25cm) or 15″ (38cm) weaving widths. It is made of high-quality apple ply and hard maple and is left unlacquered for a pleasant, natural look and feel. Included with your loom are a threading hook, warping peg, table clamps, two shuttles, and two balls of yarn. Each Cricket comes with an 8-dent reed as standard. Check out more details and to order here.
