Schacht Standard Floor Loom

Schacht's High Castle Weaving Loom

The Schacht Standard Floor Loom is available in 91cm (36") and 114cm (45") weaving widths. Both maple-high castle floor looms function in the same way. Choose either the 8-shaft model or the 4Now-4Later model to add more shafts at any time.

The number of shafts you choose will depend on what kind of weaving you plan to do. If you are interested in pattern drafting and weave structures, an 8-shaft floor loom will allow you to fully develop this interest.
