Here is a little loom you can easily take anywhere with you. The 18″ weaving width is ideal for workshops and for all those other narrow projects.
We’ve used the same sturdy X-frame and barrel-nut construction for our Wolf Pup looms as we use for our other Wolf looms. We also use many of the same components: steel hub friction brake, brake release foot pedal, aluminum harness channels, and an attached beater pin. The loom comes with stainless steel heddle bars and a stainless steel reed (choice of 6, 8, 10, 12 or 15 dent), and 300 inserted eye heddles. The simple and elegant direct tie-up system we use was first designed by F.C. Wood of Waterford, New York, who started building the Dorset Loom in 1956.
The Wolf Pup has a direct tie-up system—each harness is tied to a single treadle, making for a simple, easy-to-use 4-shaft loom. The Wolf Pup LT features jacks and lamms, like its bigger siblings the Baby Wolf and Mighty Wolf, that allow any harness to be tied to any of its 6 treadles, in whatever combination your weave structure requires.
The Wolf Pup and Wolf Pup LT both come with the Treadle Tracker, a mini clipboard for holding your threading and treadling diagrams.
The Wolf Pup folds up to a depth of just18 inches. The attached wheels automatically engage when the loom is in the folded position. The Wolf Pup weighs just 38 pounds and can be sent via UPS.
Taller weavers might consider ordering the Wolf Pup LT with height extender—it makes the loom 2″ taller, allowing more leg room.
You can accessorize your Wolf Pup or Wolf Pup LT with a 4-shaft Wolf Pup High Castle Tray, Wolf Pup Trap, Stroller (Wolf Stroller or Wolf Height Extender Stroller), Double Back Beam, and Sectional Beam.
THE WOLF PUP 8.10
The Wolf Pup 8.10 (shown here with the optional double back beam accessory) expands the options of our Wolf Pup line, offering 8-shaft, 10-treadle weaving with an 18″ weaving width. Like our other Wolf looms, the Wolf Pup 8.10 has an X-frame design, providing a sturdy base while allowing the loom to be easily folded up to a depth of 19”. Folding the loom is a cinch, with or without a warp on it. For stability and sturdiness, we employ barrel nut construction and traditional woodworking joinery. The Wolf Pup 8.10 is super compact with a footprint of just 28″ wide x 35-1/2″ deep. It’s a powerful performer with big loom features in a pint-sized loom.
The Wolf Pup 8.10 is perfect for schools and teaching studios where floor space is always a premium. You don’t need to sacrifice big loom features for narrow weaving projects or small spaces.
For rigid heddle weavers keen on pattern weaving, the Wolf Pup 8.10 will take you to the next level in a friendly, feature-full loom.
A companion to our other Wolf Pup Looms, the Wolf Pup 8.10 has outrigger front legs to make extra space for 10 treadles. The brake release lever, located on the outside of the loom, is easy to operate.
You’ll also find a treadle aid included with the Wolf Pup 8.10: it prevents shafts from floating when 6 or more shafts are raised at a time. Included with each Wolf Pup 8.10: Treadle Tracker, 600 inserted eye heddles, reed of your choice, 90 tie-up cords, and caster wheels.
Taller weavers might consider ordering the Wolf Pup 8.10 with height extender—it makes the loom 2″ taller, allowing more leg room.
You can accessorize your Wolf Pup 8.10 with an 8-shaft Wolf Pup High Castle Tray, Wolf Pup Trap, Stroller (Wolf Pup 8.10 Stroller or Wolf Height Extender Stroller), Double Back Beam, and Sectional Beam.
