Schacht Cricket Loom

The Schacht Cricket Loom is compact, capable and cute! It is available in both a 10” weaving width size and a 15” weaving width size. The Cricket is made of high quality apple ply and hard maple, and its left unfinished. As of April 2010, the Cricket has been redesigned with the ratchet gear and dog on the outside of the loom to make it even easier to adjust tension.

The 10” Cricket measures only 11" x 18" x 6" and at just under four pounds, it's easy to take along. The 10” weaving width gives you plenty of room to make a variety of projects without sacrificing portability.

The 15” Cricket is 5.5” wider than the 10” loom, yet is still compact enough to be easily portable. The additional width offers more flexibility in your choice of weaving projects. The 15” Cricket Loom uses the same reeds as the Schacht 15” Flip Rigid Heddle Loom.

Both sizes of Cricket Looms come with an 8-dent reed (sorry, no substitutions). Also included are a threading hook, warping peg, table clamps, two shuttles, and two balls of yarn. The 10” pick-up stick is just the right width for the 10” loom and additional 10” shuttles are also available.

        Comments about Schacht Cricket Loom:

        I had never done weaving before, but was able to put the loom together, and start warping, and weaving, on the first day. I had finished my first project within a day. The results helped me figure out how to choose the best yarn to achieve what I wanted. It has certainly gotten me interested in learning more, and I will eventually, want to buy a more versatile loom, which will allow me to make larger, and more varied, things.

          Comments about Schacht Cricket Loom:

          Easy to learn principles of weaving. Easy to transport. Good for making smaller projects. When assembling make sure the dowel screws tighten evenly or it will not set level on a table.
