Named after the great weaving teacher Erica de Ruiter, a specialist in three shaft weaving, the Louet Erica 30 Table loom is small and very portable. For over 40 years Erica researched weaving on three shafts: twill, huck, M’s and O’s, honeycomb, thick and thin, padded weave, Krokbragd, supplementary warps, block weaves, colour and weave, and much more.
The Louet Erica loom is an attractive alternative to a rigid heddle loom: it is easier to operate, the warp tension is more even, it has a large shed of 4.5 cm (1 ¾”) and you have flexibility in the number of threads per cm. The option to expand it to 3 or 4 shafts will make it an even more interesting alternative.
The loom is made of unlacquered beech and laminated birch. It comes complete with a built-in raddle, stainless steel reed (10 dent), 200 Texsolv heddles (150 mm) as well as lease and tie-up sticks.
It has a large shed of 4.5 cm (1 3⁄4”) and you have flexibility in the number of threads per cm. The option to expand the loom to 3 or 4 shafts makes it an even more interesting alternative.
The Erica loom is available in a 30 cm (11 3/4″) weaving width.
