The Arras Tapestry Loom is receiving glowing reviews from tapestry weavers. Have you ordered yours? Now, the Arras Beam Extension Kit is available! The beam extension kit will fit on all existing Arras Tapestry Looms. Instead of direct warping on the loom, the extension kit allows for warp and cloth storage—so that longer warps are possible. 

Available for shipping late August.  Reserve yours now for the holidays and receive $80 in store credit for yarn!

Features:

  • Durability—made of solid maple hardwood and maple plywood to hold its shape even under the high tension tapestry weaving requires, warp after warp after warp.
  • Precise tension control.
  • Generous sizing—20″ weaving width and a continuous warp of 45″. For longer warps, add the optional beam kit upgrade with ratcheted cloth and warp beams.
  • Convenient warping—set the loom in a horizontal or vertical position to warp in a way that is comfortable to you.
  • Integrated cartoon holder—clip your cartoon to it just below the warp guide.
  • Shedding divide—smooth-working and adjustable, plus easily controlled with the hand lever. The lever may be installed on the right or left side of the loom.
  • 100 Texsolv heddles included.
  • 4 color-coded coils included, at 4, 5, 6, and 8 dents. Warps can be doubled in the dents for closer setts.
  • Convenient and ergonomic design—set the loom height and weaving angle that is most comfortable for you.
  • Portability—loom weighs 10 pounds and legs fold up for travel or storage.

Optional Beam Extension Kit:

Wind longer warps on your Arras Tapestry Loom with this kit. It includes a sturdy base, plus ratcheted warp and cloth beams for superb tensioning control.

The  beam kit will fit on all Arras looms. Assembly is simple and requires only a #2 Phillips screwdriver.

Once you’ve installed the kit, you will need a raddle no more than 20″ wide to warp the loom. The Schacht raddle for warps up to 20″ wide perfectly fits the loom.
