Northwest Inkle loom

Unboxing the loom

The inkle loom from Northwest Looms arrived today!!! It was sooner than I expected, especially given the last fiasco! And I have to say,I am thoroughly impressed with this company, all the way across the board. FedEx arrived with the box, and I didn’t have a clue what it was until I read the return address, because 1) the box was huge, and 2) it had screws in it! Wow! This company does not play when they ship something out! The loom was well-packed in what is essentially a crate. The inside was framed out in wood to protect everything. The bottom of the crate was completely made of wood, and the loom was tied down to it, with styrofoam and cardboard cutouts to cushion it. The loom itself is so well-constructed, I don’t even know how to describe it! The tension bar is about 2 1/2-3″ thick, like a rolling pin. The whole thing, and the shuttle, are made of solid oak. If this was to fall on you, you

would definitely feel it, and more than likely you would break before the loom did! The pegs look like they can accomodate at least five inches of warp across. Northwest does fabulous work. I cannot wait to play with this loom! Now I’ve got to find a pattern worthy of it! And oh, boy, I need a name for it too!

Next to this, the WFA loom is sadly lacking!
