Leclerc's 4 Shaft Counterbalance Fanny model Looms have been a favorite of handweavers for over 60 years. There are literally hundreds in operation throughout North America and around the world.
Due to the ease of Treadle reach, the Fanny is favoured by the average weaver for comfort over long weaving sessions. Leclerc's compact, solid design allows weaving a full range of Fabric including Rugs. With that, Leclerc decided to enhance the overall weave-ability by introducing the Fanny II.
All Fanny II model Looms incorporate Leclerc's exclusive Shed Regulator. This unique mechanism provides a quick simple switch from balanced to unbalanced weaves with a minimum of adjustment. This provides the same versatility as a Jack Loom but with the advantage of full control over top and bottom Shed openings offered by the Counterbalance design. The Counterbalance Shed is wide and clean on every pick over the full range of 4 Shaft weaves, including the higher tension Rug designs.
For weaving a full range of 4 Shaft Fabrics, the FANNY II is the choice for price and performance.
