Named after the great weaving teacher Erica de Ruiter, a specialist in three shaft weaving, the Louet Erica table loom is small and very portable. For over 40 years Erica has done research on weaving with three shafts: twill, huck, M’s and O’s, honeycomb, thick and thin, padded weave, Krokbragd, supplementary warps, block weaves, color-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 Erica loom is available with in a 30 cm (11.75″) and 50 cm (19.5″) weaving widths.
The Erica loom can handle a 5-8 yard warp, depending on yarn thickness.
