Tapestry Table Loom by Lacis Kiliot is made of solid oak yet still lightweight; this weaving loom is easily assembled and disassembled without tools and sturdy enough for everything from lace to rugs and fine threads to heavy cords.
Tapestry Table loom
Model No: LF11
Assembly required: Yes
Features:Novel shed changing device which automatically changes the position of warp threads; an integral warping frame for the preparation of the warp; and a tension control system for easy adjustment of warp tension.
Weave pieces up to 20 inches wide and 60 inches long using the standard warping procedure.
This package contains one unassembled loom; pieces included are: two 30 inch side frames with pegs; two 24 inch back/front frame bars; two long large heddle rods; two short warp rods; four wood knobs for securing frame; two hexagonal heddle rod supports; two notched leg bars; four size 64 elastics; assembly instructions; and usage instructions.
Poorly made box kit. Instructions written poorly and with poor grammar as well as they look like bad photo copies. Kit is impossible to understand for a beginner though it is stated that it can be easily used by beginners to advanced weavers alike all over the internet. Will not purchase another Kliot/Lacis product again. When company Lacis was contacted in reference to the poorly written and photo copied instructions I was told that they did not have time for me to explain any further. Never again will I buy a Lacis/Kliot product again! Wood structural components are also of poor quality. This is not a loom for a beginner, this is a loom for an advanced weaver. I ended up purchasing a 24" Ashford Rigid Heddle Loom and love it and it is so solidly built and the components are extremely well made as well as it took less than half an hour to put together and is the simplest of looms to use!

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality levels poor.
Like the mechanics of the heddle for the shed change, but the instructions are awful...full of typos and the diagrams cover some of the type. Customer service is good once you find the number of the store, manager was able to talk me through the placement of the really sturdy bands by describing the one they have set up in the store. the directions for warping are not any better, but I am an experienced weaver. Decided to keep it in spite of these issues, but would NOT recommend this to a beginner unless they have someone who can help them figure it out.
