Louët David 2 Floor Loom
David is a compact eight harness loom that looks modest, but surpasses many large floor looms in functional quality.
It is available in 70 cm (27 5/8′′) and 90 cm (35 3/8′′) weaving width.
Like a counter balance or jack loom it has a singular tie-up. The wide shed however gives the impression of a counter march: all harnesses that are not treadled down for the shed, are lifted by an ingenious spring system. The spring system also results in easy treadling: once the treadle is pushed down, the weight of your leg is sufficient to keep the shed open.
The warp beam is held by a friction brake, enabling you to advance the fabric sitting at your loom.
David is made of lacquered beech and comes with the castle section assembled to ease the set-up of the loom.
It has a built-in raddle and shelf and included are a stainless steel reed 40-10 (10 dpi), 800 Texsolv heddles (280 mm), tie-up and lease sticks, sixteen warp sticks and the friction brake for the warp beam.
David 70: 87 x 85 x 127 cm (34 1/4" x 33 1/2" x 50")
David 70: 30 kg
