The Louet Jane is offered in three weaving widths, 40cm (15 3/4”), 50cm (19.7") or 70cm (27 5/8”).  The 50 and 70-cm Jane Looms are now offered with an option to purchase with the ability to expand them to 16-shafts at a later date.  If you are not interested in expanding to 16-shafts, choose the lower priced Jane loom.  The expandable looms are not shipping yet, but Louet will be shipping them soon. 

The 40cm loom comes with 200 heddles, the 50 cm with 300 and the 70cm with 400.  The loom comes with a 10-dent reed, lease sticks and 16 warp-separator sticks. 

This loom is truly lightweight and portable at only 10.5kg (23lbs) for the Jane 40 and 14kg (31 lbs) for the Jane 70. Jane folds down to a height of only 14cm (5 ½”) for ease of transport or storage. The Jane 40 and 50 looms have a carrying handle.  The overhead beater stays out of the way when throwing the shuttle. Jane is made of lacquered beech and has a built-in raddle.  We also offer raddle covers as well as our larger LoftyFiber raddle that snaps onto the built-in raddle when using dense warps.  

A fee or discounted TempoTreadle sensor array is available if within 30 days of a new loom purchase.  If you do not have a TempoTreadle II System Unit, the link is here:  (link) .  If you would like to use your existing System Unit , contact us about options for a Caddy and Battery.

Never make a mistake while weaving with TempoTreadle on your Jane!  See this YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6BEKUuuf_s

Jane is delivered partially unassembled with instructions to complete the assembly and add the texsolv heddles.  Expect assembly to take a few hours.  We also offer assembly as an option, but no shipping is offered on the assembled loom.   Contact us if you want to discuss a pick-up for an assembled Jane and perhaps take a class at our studio learning to weave with your new Jane.
