In our ongoing quest to share informative videos on our YouTube channel, we have two new Ask the Woolery videos to share with you today. First, we give an overview of the many types of looms available to today’s weaver, from the portable pin looms such as the popular Schacht Zoom Loom, all the way up to table and floor looms. Finding the perfect loom is a personal choice which depends on several factors, namely: which types of projects you wish to weave, your budget, and how comfortable you find each loom. Watch the video below to explore these areas in-depth to help you get a better idea of which loom is right for you!
In our next video, we explore floor looms in greater detail by explaining the difference between Jack, Counterbalance, and Countermarche Looms. The short answer? Each term refers to the different ways in which each style creates a shed (the space created when a treadle is lifted or lowered). See each style of loom in action in this short video:
All the Best,
