Schacht Spindle Company’s Baby Wolf Floor Loom (shown here with optional high castle tray) is the most uncompromising small loom available today. It has all the advantages of portability while maintaining the best big loom features. If compactness and portability are what you are looking for, you’ll be interested in this thoughtfully engineered loom.
The weaving width of the Baby Wolf is 26″. You have your choice of 4 or 8 shafts, or you can choose the 4 Now-4 Later* model which allows you to expand from 4 shafts to 8 shafts at any time. The X-frame design is exceptionally stable and can be folded to a depth of 18″.
All Baby Wolf Floor Looms may be ordered with 8 or 4 Now-4 Later shafts. The 4 Now-4 Later model is an 8-shaft loom shipped with 4 shafts installed and the space to add an additional 4 shafts. You can purchase a kit to add 4 shafts at a later time. These looms are shipped with all the heddles, tie-ups, and other items normally included with an 8-shaft loom.
The Baby Wolf Floor Loom has an underslung jack mechanism to raise the shafts. The jacks pivot from two points equidistant from the center and lift the shafts by pushing up on the center point. A parallel lamm system that gives the looms a light treadling action without any adjustment of tie-up cords.
Schacht’s Baby Wolf Floor Looms include:
- adjustable beater that allows the position of the shuttle race to be raised or lowered if necessary
- a friction brake on the warp beam that lets you advance the warp smoothly
- optional high castle that includes a handy storage tray
- optional height extender: raises the loom 2 inches, giving Wolf looms the same weaving height as Schacht Standard Floor looms.
