For Sale ~ LeClerc KEBEC I Weaving Loom for sale; $3,200.00
1970's LeClerc Kebec I is a strongly built 4 shaft counter-balance loom, allowing the production of wide fabrics. It is designed to be operated by two weavers, each one working with his own set of treadles, and throwing or receiving the shuttle in turn. It is possible to affix this loom with a flying shuttle to allow one weaver to weave alone. It is equipped with treadle sets (2) fixed in front.
Whichever treadle is used, the tension remains the same and the shed is perfect from one end to the other. Comes with plain wire heddles, bench, 2 reeds and 4 shuttles. The loom also includes four additional harnesses. The loom is currently assembled and located on Pender Island, British Columbia. Price is negotiable. Please email Charlene at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone (250) 222-8646.

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
