At first glance, Leclerc's Colonial might be mistaken for a countermarch loom, but it is a jack loom. The jacks that lift the harnesses are located in the upper castle, allowing for easier lifting of harnesses even in the twelve harness model. The loom is heavy enough for rug weaving but works equally well for fine silk. Eight and twelve harness versions are available, and the eight harness loom can later be converted to a twelve harness loom by adding a four harness kit. The loom includes:
- heavy-duty construction using Canadian Maple, finished with clear lacquer and varnish
- rear-hinged treadles for easier lifting of harnesses
- one stainless steel reed
- 1500 wire heddles
- reed and heddle hook
- one boat shuttle
- 12 plastic bobbins
- lease sticks
- apron bars
- Warp and Weave by Robert Leclerc
- assemby instructions and video
One stainless steel reed comes with the loom. Choose from 6, 8, 10, or 12 dent reed. Enter your choice in the text box above. Loom ships with 12 dent reed if no preference is listed.
