The Mighty Wolf loom is a jack loom with the weaving width of a standard floor loom but the foldability of a workshop loom. It has a 36" weaving width and is available in three versions: four harness, eight harness, and four now-four later. If you choose the four now-four later option, your loom will arrive with four harnesses but with the capacity to add four more later. No matter which model you pick, your loom will arrive fully assembled. You need only tie on the apron bars, assemble the crank, tap in the beater pins, and put the heddles into the harness frames. The loom is made of maple wood and is manufactured in Boulder, Colorado.
All Mighty Wolf looms have:
- the same parallel lamm system as the larger, standard Schacht floor looms
- easy treadle tie-up with pre-measured cords
- built-in tray over the castle to keep tools handy
- Stainless steel reed and heddle bars
- friction brake on the warp beam and ratchet brake on the cloth beam
- removable back beam for easy threading
- brass reed hook
The Mightly Wolf is a great loom even in its base model, but there are many options that allow you to customize your loom to suit your interests. You can add:
- a double back beam that gives you the option of tensioning two sets of warp threads separately (useful for doubleweave or seersucker)
- height extenders that accommodate very tall weavers
- stroller wheels that attach to the base of the Mighty Wolf and allow you to easily move the folded loom
- a sectional beam with 2" sections and a 12" circumference for sectional warping
- a raddle, useful for spreading the warp when warping from back to front
- the Wolf Trap, a nifty tool tray that mounts on the breast beam
The four harness Mighty Wolf comes with 800 inserted eye heddles; the eight harness has 1000. One stainless steel reed comes with the loom. Choose from 6, 8, 10, 12, or 15 dent reed Enter your choice in the text box above. Loom ships with 12 dent reed if no preference is listed.
