Schacht Flip Folding Rigid Heddle Loom
The Flip is Schacht's folding rigid heddle loom. It is comfortable, compact, sturdy, and a pleasure to weave on. Designed for high performance, this loom folds easily for storage or transport with locking pins to hold the loom frame in place when fully open. With the built-in option to use a second heddle this loom allows for more expansive projects such as double weave.
You can choose three different weaving modes: use the rear leg for hooking to a table edge, clamp it to a table for stand-up weaving, or install it on the convenient trestle stand.
Fine-toothed nylon ratchets provide precise tension control. The conveniently located heddle blocks on the sides of the loom hold the rigid heddle in the up, down, or neutral position. The heddle, available in 5, 8, 10 and 12 dents per inch, is made of durable ABS plastic, with large eyes and slots. The Flip is ideal for plain weaves and pick-up patterns.
Included with your Flip are clamps and a warping peg for direct-loom warping. Instructions are included for both direct and pre-measuring methods. The top cross braces allow long warps, up to 5-6 yards (4.5 to 5.5m), depending on yarn weight and winding paper, to be wound on the beams without impacting the size of the shed.
The Flip is available in 15” (38cm), 20” (51cm), 25” (63cm), and 30″ (76cm,) weaving widths, and includes one 5-, 8-, 10-, or 12-dent reed - please specify which reed you would like when you place your order. Please note that the 30" Flip is a special order item and is not normally held in stock.
What is included?
As well as the reed of your choice, the Flip loom comes with one warping peg, two stick shuttles, two clamps, threading hook, and complete warping and weaving instructions. You can choose to order your Flip with the sturdy floor stand or alternatively receive your loom on its own for use on a table top.

An optional bag is also vailable for the Flip. This bag uses an expandable design to fit all sizes of the Flip Loom. The bag is made of rugged poly canvas with reinforced stitching, carrying handles, shoulder strap, and handy pockets inside and out.
