The Schacht Flip folding rigid heddle loom,is comfortable, compact, sturdy, and a pleasure to weave on. Designed for high performance, this loom folds in a jiffy for storage or transport.
Weave in comfort. 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 our convenient trestle stand. Warp in a flash. With the Flip Bag, you can easily take Flip along with you. (trestle and bag available separately)
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. Flip is ideal for plain weaves and pick-up patterns. (Our Flips come with 10 dent reeds, with additional reed options available separately.)
Our designed-in two-heddle capabilities make it easy and natural to weave with two heddles.
Included with Flip are clamps and a warping peg for direct-loom warping. We include instructions for both direct and pre-measuring methods. Our top cross braces allow long warps, up to 5-6 yards (depending on yarn weight and winding paper), to be wound on the beams without impacting the size of the shed.
Flip is available in 15”, 20”, and 25” weaving widths, and includes one 5-, 8-, 10-, or 12-dent reed, warping peg, 2 shuttles, 2 clamps, threading hook, and complete warping and weaving instructions.
