Flip, our folding rigid heddle loom, is comfortable, compact, sturdy, and a pleasure to weave on. Designed for high performance, this loom folds in a jiffy for storage or transport.
Weave in comfort. Choose three different weaving modes: use the rear leg for hooking to a table edge, clamp it to a table for stand-up weaving, or install it on our convenient trestle stand. Warp in a flash. With the Flip Bag, you can easily take Flip along with you.
Fine-toothed nylon ratchets provide precise tension control. The conveniently located heddle blocks on the sides of the loom hold the rigid heddle in the up, down, or neutral position. The heddle, available in 5, 8, 10 and 12 dents per inch, is made of durable ABS plastic, with large eyes and slots. Flip is ideal for plain weaves and pick-up patterns.
Schacht's designed-in two-heddle capabilities make it easy and natural to weave with two heddles.
Included with Flip are clamps and a warping peg for direct-loom warping, as well as instructions for both direct and pre-measuring methods. The top cross braces allow long warps, up to 5-6 yards (depending on yarn weight and winding paper), to be wound on the beams without impacting the size of the shed.
Flip is available in 15”, 20”, 25”, and 30″ weaving widths, and includes one 5-, 8-, 10-, or 12-dent rigid heddle, warping peg, 2 shuttles, 2 clamps, threading hook, and complete warping and weaving instructions.
Read Ali’s review after weaving on the Flip:
”The heddle block is very well designed. It's easy to move between up, down, and neutral, and the heddle is super secure in all positions. And because it's longer, the front and back beams don't have to be built up as high to create the shed. So it feels very open and comfortable... you're not reaching over raised beams to do things like with the Sampleit and Cricket. Held beautiful tension all the way to the end. And the back apron comes good and close to the reed at the end, so not much waste yarn. Plus it's just freaking pretty.”
