Description

Popular because they are portable, easy to use and so versatile, Ashford table looms are in demand with both beginner and experienced weavers. Choose from 3 weaving widths and 4, 8 or 16 shaft styles.

The castle folds flat, even with your weaving in place, making these looms ideal for taking to workshops or guild meetings. The overhead beater, with automatic bounce back, gives a wonderful shed and even beating. Levers are within easy reach for comfortable weaving. Each shaft can be lifted simply and quickly and is independent, enabling a wide variety of patterns to be woven. The solid Silver Beech hardwood is lacquered for long-lasting good looks. Non-slip rubber feet give extra stability. Swedish stainless steel reed and lightweight Texsolv heddles are included. Plus there is a wide range of options and accessories available.
