Erica Table Loom
Erica is the new portable compact table loom from Louet. Erica is a compact table loom available in a 30cm and 50 cm (11 ¾“ and 19 ¾”) weaving width. Louet Erica is an attractive alternative to a rigid heddle loom. The Louet Erica is easy to operate, provides for a large weaving shed of 4.5cm (1 3/4") and provides the flexibility of choosing your weaving sett (number of threads per cm). If you are looking for a rigid heddle alternative, the Erica can be purchased in a 2 or 4 shaft option with additional shafts (up to 4) can be added at a later date.
When not in use you can fold the fully warped loom flat, making it an ideal option for travel so you can easily take it to class or on holidays. To keep the price of Erica low, Erica is made from unlacquered beech and comes in a kit form with instructions for assembly.
The Erica comes with a built-in raddle, stainless steel reed (40/10), 200 Texsolv heddles (150 mm), stainless steel lease and stainless steel tie-up bars and warp separation sticks.
The Louet Erica has been designed to be freestanding for use on a table, or it can be fitted to an optional height-adjustable floor stand. Additional stainless steel reeds are available for more flexible weaving options, and extra packs of Texsolv heddles can be purchased separately. A travel carry bag is also available for both the 30cm and 50cm width options.
If you are new to weaving or looking for the perfect travel companion, the Louet Erica compact table loom is an ideal choice. To assist in your weaving journey, Louet has created an accessory kit which includes all the tools you need to get started. The accessory kit features warping posts, weaving shuttles, reed and heddle hook for easy threading and a weaving instructions book.
Regardless of your experience level as a weaver, you may like to consider the book by Erica de Rutler titled "Weaving on Three Shafts". This book explores traditional weave structures and complex weaving options for weavers of all levels.
