Schacht Spindle Company’s Cricket Rigid Heddle Loom is compact, capable, and cute! It’s available in a 10″ or 15″ weaving width. The Cricket is made of high-quality maple ply and hard maple and is left unfinished. Each Cricket comes with an 8-dent reed (sorry, no substitutions).
10″ Weaving Width — NOT AVAILABLE
At only 13″ x 18″ x 6″ and just under four pounds, it’s easy to take along. The 10″ weaving width gives plenty of room to make a variety of projects without sacrificing portability. It’s an ideal size for a new weaver of any age. As of April 2010, the Cricket has been redesigned with the ratchet gear and dog on the outside of the loom to make it even easier to adjust tension. Additional shuttles and pick-up sticks are available.
15″ Weaving Width
The wider weaving width offers more flexibility in your choice of weaving projects, and this Cricket remains portable. Uses the same reeds as the 15″ Flip folding rigid heddle loom.
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.
