The Cranbrook loom is available in 48″ (122cm), 60″ (152cm), and 72″ (183cm) weaving widths and with four and eight shaft options.  This is the flagship of the Schacht floor loom collection. This Scandinavian-style loom has mortise-and-tenon construction, powder-coated breast and rear beams, treadle locks, and a fully adjustable overhead beater. This is a loom with a legacy that dates back to the 1930s - if you are interested in the story behind it then you might like to read about the history of the Cranbrook loom.

The tie-up system of the Cranbrook employs a special-size Texsolv nylon loop cord that remains permanently installed on the treadles and may be tied to either the upper or lower lamm.

The front, rear, and knee beams of powder-coated tubular steel give the loom added rigidity while affording better protection for the warp. The solid octagonal warp and cloth beams are 16 1/2″ in circumference. The four shaft version of the Cranbrook can also be expanded to eight shafts at any time with an extension pack available. The locking treadles are especially helpful for rug and tapestry weaving. Solid bronze ratchet gears, pawls, and beater hanger racks are featured on all Cranbrook Looms. The warp beam ratchet gear is released by a foot pedal.

Schacht have upgraded the design of this loom over time and have extended the frame of the loom to increase the loom depth by 18″. This not only makes treadling easier when using high tension, it allows more room inside the frame to maneuver for threading and treadle tie-up. Because of the extra room inside the frame, an optional sliding threading bench was designed which makes treadle tie-up much more comfortable. A 12 treadle option is also available. 

Please note that this loom is supplied as a flat-pack kit which requires assembly. Full instructions are included.

Accessories include: 12-treadle option, a second warp beam, sectional warp beam, tool tray, sliding threading bench, beater weight, and tension box rail, and raddle. Please contact us for more details.
