Schacht Spindle Company’s Tapestry Beaters are useful for many types of weaving, including tapestry and Saori-style weaving. They can also be useful for more precise beating against the fell of rigid heddle and harness loom projects.
Schacht makes three styles of tapestry beaters: single-ended, double-ended, and a weighted single-ended. All are made of hard maple and have a smooth Danish oil finish. The wooden teeth are set at five per inch.
The weighted beater has about five ounces of lead weight inserted into the end for tighter weaving.
Price $30 -$54. Available for purchase from Lambspun. Purchase online or call Lambspun at 970-484-1998 or 800-558-5262. For more information on these tapestry beaters, go to the Schacht Spindle Company website.
