Sami Warp Weighted
Our Sami Loom was designed to appear in a Scandinavian festival held at the Seattle Norweigen Museum. We provided 20 looms for their workshop. We referenced “The Warp-Weighted Loom” by Marta Hoffman during the design and production of the looms. While the original loom was traditional, we also designed a 4-harness version to allow twills and other 4-harness patterns to be woven.
Sami looms are constructed of fir and can be assembled/disassembled easily. The cloth beam at the top of the loom handles your completed weaving while your warp length is bundled with weights at the bottom of the loom. A brake handle keeps your cloth beam in place while weaving and removing the brake dowel releases your cloth beam for unwinding.

Sami Looms cost $485 USD for the traditional-style (2-harness);
$620 for the 4-harness version.
