in San Antonio, 210-721-1722

How AVL describes this loom:
Historically, this loom was built in a variety of widths. It is universally loved by owners and many remain in use today. Its production reign lasted over thirty years. The Folding Dobby Loom is a sturdy, rugged loom that gives you all of the benefits and features of an AVL loom in a compact form.With its sixteen harnesses, the weaver can do three-block Damask, fancy sixteen harness twills, up to fourteen-block summer and winter weaves, and much more. In addition, when doing 12- or 14-harness weaves, two or four harnesses are available for the selvages.It can be folded to take up a minimum amount of space, so it can easily pass through a standard doorway or be set out of the way when not in use. It is important to note that it can be folded without affecting the warp or its tension!It also has the automatic warp tensioning and adjustable spring-loaded harness return systems which are basic to AVL loom designs.
