Extra screw holes on the Jane Loom

I have just, excitedly, put together my 40cm Jane which I am going to use for sampling and workshops. I just need to find some yarn to wind a warp. We have moved house just over a year ago and most of my yarn is still packed!! I have a question on something I have […]

Cord catching on my Spring treadle

On the Spring there is one tie-up cord that is catching a treadle every time.  The cords are all the same length.  What can I do to fix this. It is very strange, always the same cord. Shorten it by one hole…..if that doesn’t stop it, shorten it by 2 holes. Easy fix. Or,  you […]

Explaining “Beat for 50/50”

Hi Jane…replying to an old post but I was hoping you could clarify what you mean about “beat for 50/50”….I have cotton and wool and would like to use the wool as warp and cotton as the weft.  I am looking to do a more open sett and want to get a lacy fabric.  I […]

Mystery parts on my “New to Me” Jane Loom

I’m thrilled to be the owner of a ‘new to me’ Jane 70 Loom. There are a couple of parts on the loom that I’m not sure of what, if anything, they are for. On the inside of the sides frame at the front of loom there is a small wood dowel sticking out, I […]

Shed on a Louet David Loom

I have a second hand David loom, with the overhead beater. I quite like it, weaves scarves, shawls and tea towels.  I saw a comment about shed size, weavers were saying that their David s gave 2” – 3” deep sheds.  So, I measured mine and it is only 1 1/2” … I reread the […]

The little black wheels and Texsolv cords on my Spring Loom shafts

The texsolv cords for my shafts go around little black wheels at the top and bottom of the loom on both sides.  However they keep coming off the wheels – it seems to be more the front shafts than the back (I’m using 1-8).  I’m doing summer and winter which is heavier on the front […]

Jane rollers

I bought my Jane loom second hand – new in the box – right around the time that the rollers were upgraded.  How can I tell whether I have the new rollers or the old ones? The new rollers are wider than the end cap.  They are 2.5cm wide. Here is a picture If you […]

How much weft for a towel?

I’m looking at Keep It Simple Towels but cannot find reference to calculating weft requirements.  The organic cotton I purchased has I believe 710 yards per cone.  Will this be enough for a towel or should I get another cone of each colour before beginning? One cone should be enough 20 ppi x 20″ wide […]

Fringes on mohair blankies????

I have a mohair question.  I have FINALLY finished the mohair blanket I started almost a year ago (yes, life got in the way). I took it off the loom last night and I absolutely love it.  Now it’s time to full it which I will do in our front load washing machine, using Ravelry’s tonigatland […]

Shafts and lamms not quite level on my Spring Loom

While I was weaving summer and winter towels I was having a problem with the cords jumping off the wheels on my Louet Spring and you advised me to shorten some of the cords (which I did).  I’ve now taken the towels off the loom and disconnected all the lamms, and put the locking pin […]
