The versatile Ashford table loom has eight shafts which fold flat (with weaving in place) for transporting to workshops or guild meetings and for convenient storage. The overhead beater, with automatic bounce back, gives a wonderful shed and even beating. Levers are within easy reach for comfortable weaving and each shaft can be lifted simply and quickly and is independent enabling a wide variety of patterns to be woven. The solid Silver Beech hard wood is lacquered for long-lasting good looks. Non-slip rubber feet give extra stability. Swedish stainless steel reed and lightweight Texsolv heddles are included. Plus there is a wide range of options and accessories available, please enquire.

When weaving on Ashford Table looms, your project may require different setts than the available reed sizes. For example your project may have a sett of 36 epi (36 ends per inch). Please see the Ashford Reed Substitution Chart to work out how to sley (thread) the reed to get the correct sett on the reeds you do have.
