Cricket Quartet

Enjoy the best of both worlds! Convert your 15″ Cricket into a 4-shaft loom!
15″ Cricket Loom and optional 15″ Cricket Stand sold separately.

Description

The Cricket Quartet reimagines our most popular rigid heddle loom, the 15″ Cricket, transforming it into a 4-shaft loom with a 13-1/2″ weaving width. We engineered the Quartet with thoughtful features that help you weave more complex patterns. Closely spaced levers move with smooth action to raise and lower shafts. You’ll achieve clean sheds with help from the extended back beam. The pivot beater maximizes your weaving space. Like all Schacht products, the Cricket Quartet is manufactured in the USA.
