Kessenich Floor Loom, weaving width is 46”. Front and back beam is removable for easy threading. Hight of the front beam is 32”.


Front to back is 51” and 62” wide plus 10” if the shelves are on. (two are included) This loom can be folded up when not in use and then just 28” deep. Kessenich is still producing and selling looms in case you would like to add double beam or sectional beam.


This is a very sturdy loom and unlike other foldable jack looms, holds tension very good and easy to be used for rugs or tapestry too. Only reason I’m selling is that I use my AVL a lot and no room for equipment that is not used. Bench is included. Comes with ss 8,10 15 dpi reeds. Willing to travel to meet up somewhere for gas money and a dinner for two ;)
