Although the Home Loom was introduced in 1989, it is derived from a loom originally built in 1949 by Jim Ahrens. The Home Loom is AVL's marriage between the innovative technology found in our other looms and a family room friendly design. We've even design the warp beam mounting to fold up enabling easier loom storage.
And even with a small price tag, this loom doesn't skimp on quality. It features the same kiln-dried hardwood construction, nicely oiled finish, and attention to even the smallest detail found on all other AVL looms.Another inviting characteristic is the Home Loom's unique side tie-up design. Never again will you have to crawl under the loom to set the pattern! This one benefit alone has drawn scores of customers to AVL over the years.
The Home Loom is available in 40" or 48" weaving width and can be equipped with up to eight harnesses and ten treadles. Or, instead of treadles, step up to the power of a Compu-Dobby IV. The Home Loom is the perfect loom for the weaver who's just starting out and looking for a loom that can expand with the weaver's skills.
