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 just 18 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.
