LOOMS BY TYPE
Physically, there are several different types of looms that range in size and features:
Floor Loom -
Floor looms are best used for producing longer lengths of fabric, for
production work, designs that are more complex and for carpets and rugs.
The loom must be solid and stable without being excessively heavy.
Table Looms -
These smaller, less expensive, portable looms are usually jack looms.
Sometimes they have springs under the shafts to hold them down. Table
looms are good for learning as they are portable enough to put into a
car or even on a plane to take to a workshop.
Rigid Heddle - provide the equivalent of two-shaft weaving and can be adapted to behave as a four shaft loom by adding a second heddle set.
Tapestry Frame Loom - The tapestry frame loom is the most simple form for a weaving loom. The Navajo loom would be considered a frame loom.
Back strap loom
- A simple loom comprising two sticks between which the warps are
stretched. One bar is attached to a fixed object and the other to the
weaver usually by means of a strap around the back.
The Inkle Loom - A simple table loom and can also be found in a larger form as a floor loom.
