Louet Spring Loom with tiptoe treadling. Louet is known for it's innovative design. Weavers tell me how thoughtfully designed the Louet looms are for the weaver. Personally, I find the treadling on my Louet Spring Loom to be incredibly light, tie-up is easy, and the beater handle is a useful feature. The spring loaded beam makes for wonderfully tight tension when needed and it also produces a big clean shed. It is a loom I will be weaving on for many years to come.

The Louet Spring loom is one of the most innovative cleverly designed floor looms on the market today. It uses the Parallel countermarch system for the harnesses and lams, which is easy to use and simple to tie-up.
An exclusive feature to this loom is the patented moving breast beam controlled by springs. The breast beam is attached to the loom in such a way that it is free to move toward the harnesses when the shed is made and then back toward the weaver when the shed is closed again. The distance between the breast beam and the back beam actually changes during weaving. With this system a larger shed can be obtained with less tension increase in the warp and less effort from the weaver.
The advantages of this system are especially evident as you near the end of the warp. Even when the end of the warp is very close to the harnesses, a good shed can be made, thus saving yards and yards of wasted warp over the life of your loom.
The moving breast beam also brings on exactly the same warp tension each time the warp is advanced. The design of the loom includes a built-in raddle on top of the castle and a storage shelf for keeping everything you need within easy reach.
The Spring can be ordered with 8 harnesses and 10 treadles or 12 harnesses and 14 treadles, the 8 harness loom can be extended to a maximum of 12 harnesses with the optional 4 harness extension kit. The heddles and tie-up cords are of the Swedish Texsolv system that make them quite strong and non-stretching. The spring has two weaving widths: 35 inch and 43 inch. It comes standard with either 8 harnesses and 10 treadles with 600 Texsolv heddles (Spring 90) OR 12 harnesses and 14 treadles with 800 Texsolv heddles (Spring 110), 10 dent stainless steel reed, friction brake, 2 lease sticks and 16 warp sticks. The Spring is made of lacquered beech. The loom castle comes already assembled and all the cords are already on the loom to make assembly faster and easier. Clear instructions are included.
The Spring 110 is identical to the Spring 90 in all things except it has a wider weaving width. Upon special request, a 16 shaft version is available. The dimensions are: width: Spring 90 is 48 inches wide, Spring 110 is 55 inches wide, height = 45 inches, depth = 34 inches and 27 inches folded.
