David 70 (27.5”) Loom

(1 customer review)


“Small but Mighty”   Named after David and Goliath, David is a compact 8 harness loom loaded with functionality.  The David is a unique sinking shed jack loom with a 5″ shed and has become a very popular compact floor loom.  David comes standard with 8 harnesses and while he may look modest, he has tremendous functionality and the weaving experience surpasses many large floor looms.  Smooth and light-weight treadles due to a cam system give the David treadles a mechanical advantage.  Weaving on this loom gives you a real appreciation for the word balance.

Like a counter balance or a jack loom, it has a singular tie-up.  All harnesses sit in the up position.  The harnesses that need to move to create a shed are pulled down by an ingenious spring system.  The spring system also results in easy treadling: once the treadle is pushed down, the weight of your leg is sufficient to keep the shed open.

    • David 70: 27.5″ (70 cm) weaving width
    • David 90: 35″ (90 cm) weaving width

  1. Sandra

    The Louet David is the perfect loom for anyone who has limited space but still wants a loom that gives them the creative tools available with 8 shafts. The tie-up couldn't be easier and the weaving goes smoothly and quietly. The lock pin makes the threading and denting so easy, and the shelf gives you easy access to your shuttles, snips, pins, etc. as you work away. All in all, it's a beautiful, compact loom that's perfect for me.
