Product Description

“Small but Mighty”

Named after David and Goliath, David is a compact 8 harness floor loom loaded with functionality. The David is a unique sinking shed jack loom with a 3″ 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 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 ½″ (70 cm) weaving width

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