For Sale ~ Spring Loom + Accessories for sale  $4,500

Spring loom, owned by Silk Weaving Studio production weaver. This 90cm/36” loom is an older girl, but has had only 2 owners. She’s worked hard, and has been lovingly cared for. She’s an “Bells and Whistles” manual loom, featuring 12 harnesses, 14 treadles, and a second back beam. For the breadth of things she can do, she’s compact and won’t demand too much space. Her back folds up a bit when she’s not in use (which won’t be often if she gets her way). She’ll be happiest with a serious weaver who will put her through her paces. She likes to work hard, and won’t disappoint you.

"Effie" - this is her second fleece so has changed from mostly black with some silver hairs to a dark grey with a hint of silver. The fleece was coated all year round but there is the odd area that has some sun-bleached tips. Medium crimp, and semi-soft to the touch. Staple length is about 5 3/4 inches. Very clean with virtually no VM.

Total weight 2 7/8 lbs (this is half a fleece)

$50 plus shipping

 

"Fara" - a first shearing for this girl. The fleece was coated from about 4 months of age, so the tips are sunbleached to a golden brown. The fleece has some variegation and may range from a grey to silver. Medium crimp, and very soft to the touch. Staple length is about 6 inches. Very little VM, but there is some.

Total weight 6 1/2 lbs.

$130 plus shipping
