The Cricket is made of high quality apple ply and hard maple, and is left unfinished. The Cricket has been designed with the ratchet gear and dog on the outside of the loom to make it even easier to adjust tension. The 10” Cricket measures only 11″ x 18″ x 6″ and at just under four pounds, it’s easy to take along. The 10” weaving width gives you plenty of room to make a variety of projects without sacrificing portability. The Cricket Loom comes with an 8-dent reed. More details can be found on the Schacht website. Retail $189
The newest evolution of the popular Kiwi Spinning Wheel. Now with folding treadles for easy storage and transport. This is an excellent beginner wheel due to its easy learning ratios, double treadle and affordable price. The double treadle and ball bearings allow for easy treadling and “hands-free” start. Treadles are hinged to allow a comfortable heel-toe action. The stretchy drive cord does not require any adjustment as you change from one ratio to another and always maintains the correct tension. The scotch tension allows easy control of the drafting process. The central flyer is convenient for right and left-handed spinners. The wheel is easy and quick to assemble with the Allen key supplied and the robust construction makes this an ideal wheel for individuals, schools and clubs. More info at Ashford’s website.
