Schacht Cricket Rigid Heddle Loom - 10" (25cm) and 15" (38cm)

10” Cricket currently in stock, waiting a new stock of the 15” 

The Cricket Loom is in our opinion the best loom on the market for the beginner weaver. This is a sturdy wee loom, well made and thoughtfully designed with the weaver in mind - all as you would expect from Schacht. We use this loom for our introductory Learn to Weave class but also for the experienced weaver this is a great little loom for rigid heddle projects.

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. The Cricket has the ratchet gear and dog on the outside of the loom to make it even easier to adjust tension. 

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.

Additional reeds are available at 5-, 10- and 12-dpi and a variable dent reed is also available for both the 10" and 15" widths. An optional floor stand is also available.

10″ (25cm) Weaving Width

At only 27cm x 46cm x 15cm and just under 1.8kg, it’s easy to take along. The small 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. Additional 10″ cricket shuttles and 10″ cricket pick-up sticks are available.

15″ (38cm) Weaving Width

Although wider than the 10″ Cricket, the 15″ Cricket is still compact enough to take with you easily. The 15″ weaving width offers more flexibility in your choice of weaving projects. Uses the same reeds as the 15″ Flip folding rigid heddle loom. Additional 15″ cricket shuttles and 15″ cricket pick-up sticks are available.
