Glimakra Drawlooms

If you want to have a lot of fun making designs and patterns, try weaving on a drawloom. If you want to experience this type of weaving, sign up for a drawloom class from Joanne Hall at Elkhorn Mountains Weaving Studio. Check Joanne’s teaching schedule.

A drawloom is a frame which sits on the top of your loom. It adds a second harness of shafts called pattern shafts.  These give you pattern capability beyond what you can get with any other type of loom, more pattern capability than you can get with a computer operated loom.  You can change your pattern at any time to something completely new, weave in your name or an image and you can weave different designs without changing the threading or the tie-up. We stock drawlooms for weaving widths from 39″ (100cm) to 63″ (160cm). The written instructions show you how to assemble the drawloom and the DVD shows you how to warp and weave. Drawloom prices are listed on the price list.
