The AVL Home Loom is a classic 8 harness, 10 treadle floor loom originally designed by Jim Ahrens in 1949.


Please note stated prices includes full ongoing technical support.


Simple and elegant, its unique side-tie up system sets this loom apart from others in its class as there's no need to get under the loom to tie up harnesses. 


The Home Loom is a rising shed loom that uses a system of harness springs and spring levers to create a shed. Unlike jack looms with heavy harnesses, the AVL spring lever system uses lightweight harness frames. Therefore treadling is light and easy even with sticky yarns and high tension. 


Also, with its folding frame and low profile, the AVL Home Loom won't take up much space in your home, studio or classroom.
