The Nilus is Leclerc's original model of jack loom. This model was retired by Leclerc in the 1980s, but thanks to popular demand they brought it back into production.

The Leclerc Nilus is a sturdy 4-shaft jack-type loom that folds to a depth of 25" (63 cm). A loom with independent shafts is ideal for weaving any type of fiber. The Nilus is one of the most popular models of Leclerc looms. It includes a friction brake for strong tension and precise adjustment. Its removable front and back beam let you get close to the shafts for easy and comfortable threading.

We have a much-loved Nilus in the studio at Gather, and Ali has two of them in her weaving studio! These looms are solid and sturdy. You can bang out yardage without worrying about the loom 'walking'. Taller weavers often find them very comfortable.

Each Nilus comes with:

  • Stainless Steel Reed, 12 dents/inch
  • 10½" (26.8 cm) wire heddles
  • 1 boat shuttle 6122-3000
  • 1 reed and heddle hook 6141-7000
  • 2 lease sticks
  • 4 warp rods
  • 2 cords
  • 2 aprons
  • Assembly instructions and Video
  • Book "Warp and Weave"
