Always wanted to weave, but never wanted to invest in an expensive loom that would take up half your living room? The Schacht FLIP Rigid Heddle Loom is the perfect solution to learn to weave on a simple, affordable and portable loom!
Need to understand how a rigid heddle loom works? Watch this short video by Jane Patrick, from Schacht show you how.
Schacht's newest folding loom, FLIP, is comfortable, compact, sturdy, and a pleasure to weave on. Designed for high performance, this loom folds in a jiffy for storage or transport.
Weave in comfort. Choose three different weaving modes: use the rear leg for hooking to a table edge, clamp it to a table for stand-up weaving, or install it on our convenient trestle stand. Warp in a flash.
With the FLIP Bag, you can easily take FLIP along with you. The bag is made of rugged poly canvas with reinforced stitching, carrying handles, shoulder strap, and handy pockets inside and out. Our unique, expandable design is a snap to use: zip out for 20" or 25" FLIP looms; zip up for 15".
Fine-toothed nylon ratchets provide precise tension control. The conveniently located heddle blocks on the sides of the loom hold the rigid heddle in the up, down, or neutral position. The heddle, available in 8, 10 and 12 dents per inch, is made of durable ABS plastic, with large eyes and slots. FLIP is ideal for plain weaves and pick-up patterns.
Flip is available in 15”, 20”, 25” and 30" weaving widths, and includes a 10-dent reed, warping peg, 2 shuttles, 2 clamps, threading hook, and complete warping and weaving instructions.
The 10-dent reed is the most popular and required for most Cotton Clouds rigid heddle kits. Order extra size 8 and 12 dent reeds below.
CONVENIENT WEAVING WITH THE FLIP TRAP Shown above, the FLIP Trap give you a convenient yet still portable place to set your tools while weaving. The FLIP Trap installs into the ends of the loom sides, using the same holes as the clamps.
WEAVE ON FLIP WITH TWO HEDDLES
Our designed-in two-heddle capabilities make it easy and natural to weave with two heddles
CLAMPS AND A WARPING PEG Included with Flip are clamps and a warping peg for direct-loom warping. We include instructions for both direct and pre-measuring methods. Our top cross braces allow long warps, up to 5-6 yards (depending on yarn weight and winding paper), to be wound on the beams without impacting the size of the shed.
EXPANDABLE FLIP TRAVEL BAG Our updated FLIP Bag now fits sizes up to 30" FLIP Loom.
TRESTLE STAND Our trestle stand fits all of our rigid heddle and tapestry looms. Adjustable supports allow the loom to be used at a variety of angles from horizontal to nearly vertical. When the loom is in the horizontal position, it is at just the right height for use with a standard chair. Our quick release system makes it easy to remove your loom from the stand for travel or storage.
Note: There are have been design changes to the trestle stand. Depending on when a given trestle stand and Flip Loom were built, an insert kit may be required. Please see the Trestle Stand page for further information.
