Weaving Looms By Types

Loom Categories

Floor Looms

Floor looms are best used for producing longer lengths of fabric, for production work, designs that are more complex and for carpets and rugs. The loom must be solid and stable without being excessively heavy. Three different types of floor looms are: Jack, Counterbalance, and Countermarch.

Table Looms

These smaller, less expensive, portable looms are usually jack looms. Sometimes they have springs under the shafts to hold them down. Table looms are good for learning as they are portable enough to put into a car or even on a plane to take to a workshop.

Rigid Heddle Looms

These looms provide the equivalent of two-shaft weaving and can be adapted to behave as a four shaft loom by adding a second heddle set. 

Tapestry Looms

The tapestry frame loom is the most simple form for a weaving loom. The Navajo loom would be considered a frame loom.

Back Strap Looms

A simple loom comprising two sticks between which the warps are stretched. One bar is attached to a fixed object and the other to the weaver usually by means of a strap around the back.

Inkle Loom

A simple table loom and can also be found in a larger form as a floor loom.
