Product Description

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.

    Perfect little tiny loom! The size is great, because I can put it away for storage away from the cats, or bring it out to the table for weaving. I initially bought it with 1 extra shaft (3 total) but then I decided to make a twill scarf, and purchased a 4th shaft. This flexibility is what drew me to the Erica in the first place, and I’m very pleased with it. The instructions to build it are very clear, and easy to follow, it probably took me a couple hours, but I’m pretty handy with that sort of thing. There are a lot of little bits, but they come pretty well organized, and as long as you keep them organized, the construction goes pretty quickly. It’s a pretty sturdy little loom, easy to warp, easy to weave on. Definitely a good investment for sampling 4-shaft projects, or for doing a quick scarf when you have something else on your main loom.

    I bought the two shaft version, with the intention of using it to weave up my stash of hand dyed sock yarns. This is the perfect little loom for doing that – faster and more comfortable to weave with than my old rigid heddle loom.

    There’s very little loom loss, and warping the Erica is easy and intuitive. I do plan to eventually add the additional two shafts, but for now I’m having fun working down my knitting yarn stash and playing with colour and weave patterns.

    If you plan to do any finishing to the wood, do it before putting the loom together, or you’ll end up like me, putting off the finishing because I usually have another warp ready to put on as soon as I finish the warp-in-progress.
