Loom for Sale

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 + other accessories

You can see the company’s product website at: https://www.glimakrausa.com/countermarch-standard-loom-100cm39-p895

Asking $600 or best offer

Must be able to pick up. I am moving July 1st and must find a new home for this loom before then.
