Louet Octado Dobby Loom
The Octado loom is an 8-shaft loom where you never need to do a tie-up! It has an electronic interface that uses a WIF to determine the shafts to raise for each weft pick. LoftyFiber has a driver to use with your PC to guide the weaving. The Octado comes in three weaving widths (70, 90 and 110cm). These widths are approximately 27 3/4", 35 3/8" and 43 1/4". The Octado always has 8 shafts. The loom comes with a 10-dent reed and 600/800/1200 texsolv heddles. The electronic dobby is sold separately (see listing) as it is possible to use a mechanical dobby chain with this loom. We recommend the electronic dobby but we can order the mechanical dobby.
We also supply TempoWeave Dobby Software that works with this loom.
