David loom: 90cm/36": 8 shafts
If you want a floor loom with a small footprint, we would recommend the Louet David. It’s quite unusual in that it has a sinking shed - the warp threads are pulled down instead of being pulled up - and parallel lams, which means that equal, surprisingly light, pressure is needed to depress any of the treadles. The action of the treadles is very smooth and it’s an
extremely pleasant loom to weave on. It has eight shafts and ten treadles, allowing you to have a full twill tie-up whilst keeping two treadles tied for plain weave. There is a built-in raddle and a shelf incorporated into the castle, and the loom has recently been reconfigured slightly so that it now boasts a sliding beater with a shuttle race. It’s not strictly a folding loom, but the back beam can be loosened and pulled in to reduce the depth a little while not in use. Somewhat surprisingly, the David will fit in the back of a medium-sized hatchback!
