Erica is a compact table loom with 30 cm (11 ¾“) weaving. It is an attractive alternative to a rigid heddle loom: it is easier to operate, the warp tension is more even, it has a large shed of 4.5 cm (1 ¾”) and you have flexibility in the number of threads per cm. The option to expand it to 3 or 4 shafts will make it an even more interesting alternative to a rigid heddle loom at a very competitive price. Unlike most table looms, however, it is foldable, making it fantastically easy to transport.
The loom is made of unlacquered beech and laminated birch. It comes complete with built-in raddle, stainless steel reed (40/10), 200 Texsolv heddles (150 mm) and lease- and tie-up sticks. The folded size is 55 x 48 x 16 cm (22” x 19 1/8” x 6 3/8”) and it weighs 3.5 kg (7¾ lb).
