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 is 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.
