SCHACHT BABY WOLF LOOM
Our Baby Wolf loom is the most uncompromised small loom available today. It has all the advantages of portability while maintaining the best big loom features. If compactness and portability are what you are looking for, you’ll be interested in this thoughtfully engineered loom.
The weaving width of the Baby Wolf is 26″. You have your choice of four or eight shafts, or you can choose our Four Now-Four Later* model which allows you to expand from four shafts to eight shafts at any time. The X-frame design is exceptionally stable and can be easily folded to a depth of 18″.
The adjustable beater allows the position of the shuttle race to be raised or lowered if necessary. The Baby Wolf employs a friction brake on the warp beam which lets you advance the warp smoothly.
*”Four Now – Four Later” (4N4L) is an eight harness loom shipped with only four harnesses installed, but with the capacity to add an additional four harnesses. You can purchase a kit to add four harnesses at a later time. 4N4L looms are shipped with all the heddles, tie-ups and other items normally included with an eight harness loom.
Our sectional warp beam kit is added to an existing beam and has two-inch sections and a 12″ circumference. It comes as a kit which is added to your existing beam. The Wolf looms can be folded to a depth of 20″ with the sectional beam on.
Loom Bench with optional bags
Our loom bench is a beautiful companion piece to our looms. The bench seat height is adjustable from 19″ to 24″ and has been designed to offer you both a flat and a slanted seat position. The bench is free of side posts, which allows you to move around unrestricted. Below the seat is a storage bin for holding accessories. The loom bench is available in cherry and maple.
Our optional bench bags can be purchased with the bench or added later. The bags are made of durable Cordura cloth and can be mounted on either or both sides of the bench seat. They are available with cherry or maple end bars.
Most Wolf aficionados find the Wolf Stroller an indispensable accessory. Whether you’ve got a Wolf Pup, Baby Wolf or Mighty Wolf, our Stroller makes moving your loom around easy. When installed on the loom, the wheels automatically engage when the loom is folded up, and disengage when the loom is opened.
No more taping your draft to the front of your loom. With the Schacht Treadle Tracker, you can display your draft or treadling sequence in easy view.
The Wolf Trap
Here’s another great storage option; it’s wide enough to hold shuttles, threading hook, bobbins, and scissors, but doesn’t interfere with your weaving. Please note that the shape of the beams the Wolf Trap attaches to have been modified at various times in the product’s history. In the past we produced these with rounded beams but current production runs have beams that are squared. Our current Wolf Trap has been designed to be a universal fit for both old and new style beams.
High Castle Tray
Our Baby Wolf Castle Tray provides handy storage
and a convenient place to mount the swivel pin of
an extension lamp. Available in both 4-shaft and
8-shaft models at any time.
Our height extender raises the loom two inches, giving our Wolf looms the same weaving height as our Standard floor looms.
Double Back Beams
Double back beams facilitate different warp tensions needed for such weaves as pique, supplementary warp, or seersucker. Installation is straightforward. Double back beams may be added at any time. They have a separate brake.
