Our brass S-shaped reed hook is designed to fit comfortably in your hand. The large hook makes the sleying of various size yarns easy.
Heddle hooks are available in two blade lengths — 4 1/2″ and 7 1/2″. Use for threading heddles on a harness loom or for threading rigid heddle reeds.
Warping paddles can save you time when measuring many warp threads. Our paddle makes it possible to measure up to 20 threads at a time. The slot-and-eye design alleviates the need to hand pick the cross. The square handle makes it easy to clamp our warping paddle to a shelf or table.
Warping Pegs are the simplest and most portable warp-measuring tools. They clamp to a table or counter, with the single peg placed at one end of the warp length and the pair of pegs placed at the other end, spread as far apart as the warp is long. As of February 2018, the set includes two clamps.
Warping Boards are the most commonly used measuring devices. Our warping boards are available in two sizes: the 14 yard warping board is one yard across and the 4 1/2 yard warping board measures a half yard across. To withstand the strain of threads under tension, we tenon our hardwood dowels and press them securely into the frame.
Warping mills are ideal for long warps. Instead of going back and forth with your arm to measure threads like on a warping board, the warping mill goes around and around which is quicker and less tiring. Our horizontal warping mill has a two yard circumference, will hold up to 18 yards of warp, and can be folded up for storage. It may be used on a table or the floor.
Note: As of 3/17/2015, the vertical warping mill has been discontinued. Some parts may still be available.
Our spool rack is essential for sectional warping. Ours will hold up to forty 4″ spools and has a center post that pivots for easy loading and unloading. The center post locks into place during use. Even though the spool rack is generally used for sectional warping. It can be indispensable for other studio tasks as well: holding standard yarn tubes and bobbins or as a place to clamp a swift or ball winder. Our spools are made of cardboard and measure 4″ wide with 3″ flanges.
Our Tension Box features a mounting bracket that adjusts to fit all our looms: Wolf, Standard, or Cranbrook. It should be compatible with floor looms other than ours as well. Features include: two-sided sturdy construction with an 8-dent reed at the back, an adjustable tension knob, a heddle to make the cross, and a swiveling 12-dent reed at the front to adjust the feeding width of the warp.
SECTIONAL WARP BEAMS
Sectional warp beams are available for our Wolf looms, Standard floor looms, and Cranbrook looms. Our sectional beams are easily assembled and can be installed on the existing warp beam of your Schacht loom at any time. Sectional beams for Standard floor looms have 2″ sections and a one half yard circumference; Baby Wolf and Mighty Wolf sectional beams have 2″ sections and a one foot circumference. They are available in maple or cherry with maple pegs.
Yardage counters are useful tools for those who warp sectionally. As opposed to most counters which read in feet, ours records yards (you can also request a meter counter). The counter will record up to 9999 yards and comes complete with a clamp.
Raddles help keep a warp spread evenly as it is wound onto the warp beam. Ours have built-in clamps and can be attached to either the loom’s back beam or the shuttle race of the beater. The raddles come with plated pins inserted every inch and with holes drilled every half inch with enough extra pins included should you prefer half-inch spacing. Our Wolf Pup, Baby Wolf and Mighty Wolf Raddles come with special mounting brackets for the Wolf loom diagonal beams, as well as clamps for square beams or shuttle races.
