Welcome to dickblick
Perfect for the classroom or for personal use. Not only is the Inkle Loom durable, it is also easy to use. The ¾" pegs are pressed and glued into 1" deep holes to withstand the tension typical of an inkle loom.
Quick warping with the open sides (detailed instructions included). Warping is possible up to 8½ feet long and 4½" wide. Maintain perfect tension with sliding control bar.
Made of hard maple, sanded and unfinished. Shuttle not included.

Lovely little loom
from Menlo Park, CA
Comments about Schacht Inkle Loom:
I bought this Inkle loom for card/tablet weaving, but like it so much I imagine I will learn to Inkle weave on it as well. It is very well made and so far I have no complaints with it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My Second Inkle Loom
By Weaving Gene
So far I have only used this loom to make inkle bands. However, due to the nice shed area, I am sure it will be great for card weaving. The tensioning is nice on this loom, the shed area is well designed for nice easily opened sheds. I would like it better if there were a finish on the wood - especially the pegs to make the warp advance more easily.
Great Size and Solid Build
from Huntsville, Alabama
I was thrilled to receive the Schacht Inkle Loom. I love the overall size of the loom. I am working with card weaving and the size of this loom makes it easier to manipulate the cards and add more cards without having difficulties. The Schacht Inkle Loom is well built. I have complete confidence that it will hold up to strong tensions. The tension adjustment is easy to use and to adjust. Great product.
Great for jumping right into weaving
By The Weaving Guy
from Greensboro, NC
I jumped right into weaving with a 4-harness floor loom. It took me about two years to finally get the hang of it...and I still have a lot to learn! The reason is that I found a used floor loom and couldn't beat the price.In hindsight, I wish I had gotten my feet wet with this small but effective inkle loom. You can find a ton of videos about dressing this loom, and with just a little bit of yarn, you can be up and weaving. You are going to make belts and straps with this type of loom, but you will also get some valuable insight into the weaving process on a small scale.If I had started here with the inkle, then I would have moved on the a rigid heddle.When I was comfortable with those, I would have then moved into the floor loom.This is a great, well-made loom. Schacht is a major loom-supply company and this loom is great quality. I went with a new one because I didn't have the skill to make my own or the patience to wait for a used one. I am glad I went ahead and bought a new one because it is solidly made and I felt comfortable with Dick Blick backing it up.Less than a day after it arrived, I had watched a few videos and started weaving my first project. A lot of fun and likely something kids of all ages can enjoy, but also something the serious weaver can make a lot of wonderful projects.I highly recommend if you are in the market for an inkle loom.
By Sara the weaver
I have wanted one of these for years. I checked many reviews and this one seemed the best. It is. It took me a little while (a day or two) to figure out how to warp and use it, but it is well built and easy to adjust. It is very strongly built out of beautiful maple. I look forward to many years of weaving pleasure.
Would buy this brand again and again!
from Merritt Island, FL
I consider this the best Inkle loom available and am extremely pleased with it. The service from Dick Blick was outstanding.
Love my loom and great price!

The loom came quickly and was packed very carefully. It's fairly solidly built, though I'm giving it 4 instead of 5 stars because one of the pegs is a little wobbly. I'm looking forward to weaving with it!

Great Inkle Loom
from West Linn, Oregon
I teach a Fiber Art course in a high school. The students struggle with the design concepts at first (how to alternate colors to achieve bands of color/checkerboard effects) but once they 'get it' they love it. I have had more students ask me 'where did you get this?' and 'how much do they cost?' questions from them. They want to start their own Etsy/Saturday market business!

Schacht Inkle Loom web purchase
I purchased 2 looms for my daughters. The order arrived in one box within just a few days. One thumb tighten bolt each and they were assembled....... easy. What you get: Designed well, finished perfectly (soooooo smooth) and priced fairly. I have built this loom from my own design years ago and understand that there is more engineering and wood working skill required than meets the eye. My daughters watched on-line videos and with some help..... were weaving their first belts.... suggestion.... package a "starter kit" of a book and a selection of yarns........ as an add on.
Inkle looms are used for weaving narrow bands that can be used as belts, straps and trim. See how to get started warping and weaving on your Schacht Spindle Inkle Loom.
