Glimakra Countermarche Loom 120cm/47″ – $1000
This loom is approximately 50 years old, and has been used fairly consistently throughout that time. They are built to last, and you will be able to tell that it is a well cared for and well used loom with signs of it’s use, but still in good working order.

I have woven hundreds of handspun scarves and blankets on it, and the wood is burnished through use. The previous owner, Karen Casselman (Well known for writing books on lichen dying) has also left her mark on it as well, with some of the heddles having been dyed lichen purple.

Included with the loom are everything you would need to start weaving with it:

8 Harness Loom, 10 Treadles
Texsolve heddles and tie-up cords
Bench
Multiple shuttles
Warping Board (cracked)
6 Reeds: 4, 6, 8, 9, 10., 16 EPI (poor condition, but still usable)
Raddle
Sley Hook
Lease sticks
Warping Sticks
Bobbin Winder
+ more accesories

There are a few minor missing pieces that can be easily replaced such as screws to hold the seat on the bench(it is still sturdy without)
