Glimakra Standard Countermarch 4 Shaft Weaving Loom, weaving width 120cm (47″) with 6 treadles.
Drawing on the Scandinavian tradition and Glimakra’s many years of experience, this weaving loom has the design strength for professional rug weaving. It is built in top quality Swedish Pine with a varnished finish and supplied direct from Sweden.
The looms accept long warp lengths allowing for all types of weaving especially high warp tension rugs. Open sided construction gives maximum accessibility during tie up and threading.
In a countermarch tie-up the shafts are raised or lowered independently of each other as compared to the counterbalance tie-up, where the shafts are balanced against each other.
Since the shafts may be raised and lowered independently, the shed will be even and better – this is an advantage in any weaving. This is more significant in multi-shaft weaving, when using delicate material or uneven number of shafts or a narrow warp in a wide loom or with uneven distribution of warp threads in the shafts.
The loom comes with Weaving Bench, cloth protection board (in front of the breast beam), Warp Sticks, Heddles and tie-up and instructions. We include 250 heddles per shaft and one tie-up kit per 4 shafts, the reed is not included. Floor space required: 151cm x 160cm, height 175cm.
It is available with many variations and adaptations for specialised weaving techniques. The Standard weaving loom is designed so that you can equipped it with a fly shuttle beater, double warp beam, sectional beam, loom extension, drawloom, etc. and these can be added at any time.
