Schacht Spindle Company’s Wolf Pup Floor Loom (shown here with the optional double back beam accessory) is a little loom you can easily take anywhere with you. The 18″ weaving width is ideal for workshops and for all those other narrow projects.
Wolf Pup Looms have the same sturdy X-frame and barrel-nut construction as the other Schacht Wolf looms. The Wolf Pup weighs just 38 pounds and folds up to a depth of just 18 inches. The attached wheels automatically engage when the loom is in the folded position.
Wolf Pup 8.10
For rigid heddle weavers keen on pattern weaving, the Wolf Pup 8.10 will take you to the next level in a friendly, feature-full loom. The Wolf Pup 8.10 offers 8-shaft, 10-treadle weaving with an 18″ weaving width. A companion to the other Wolf Pup Looms, the Wolf Pup 8.10 has outrigger front legs to make extra space for 10 treadles.
Like our other Wolf looms, the Wolf Pup 8.10 has an X-frame design, providing a sturdy base while allowing the loom to be easily folded up to a depth of 19”. Folding the loom is a cinch, with or without a warp on it. The brake release lever, located on the outside of the loom, is easy to operate. For stability and sturdiness, the loom has barrel nut construction and traditional woodworking joinery. The Wolf Pup 8.10 is super compact with a footprint of just 28″ wide x 35-1/2″ deep. It’s a powerful performer with big loom features in a pint-sized loom.
You’ll also find a treadle aid included with the Wolf Pup 8.10: it prevents shafts from floating when 6 or more shafts are raised at a time. Included with each Wolf Pup 8.10: Treadle Tracker, 600 inserted eye heddles, reed of your choice, 90 tie-up cords, and caster wheels.
The Wolf Pup has a direct tie-up system—each harness is tied to a single treadle, making for a simple, easy-to-use 4-shaft loom. The Wolf Pup LT features jacks and lamms, that allow any harness to be tied to any of its treadles, in whatever combination your weave structure requires. This simple and elegant direct tie-up system was first designed by F.C. Wood of Waterford, New York, who started building the Dorset Loom in 1956.
