Finally, the best table loom ever! Designed by a weaver for weavers, this table loom offers exceptional features and performance to make any weaving project a snap. Jane is offered in two weaving widths, 40cm (15 3/4") or 70cm (27 5/8") with standard 8 harnesses.
This loom is truly lightweight and portable at only 10.5kg (23lbs) for the Jane 40 and 14kg (31 lbs) for the Jane 70. Jane folds down to a height of only 14cm (5 ½”) for ease of transport or storage. Jane has been designed after consultation with weavers, while using successful techniques from its predecessor, the Kombo. There is no cord wear, since cords run over rollers and the overhead beater stays out of the way when throwing the shuttle. Jane is made of lacquered beech and has a built-in raddle. The loom is partly assembled and comes complete with a stainless steel reed 40-10 (metric), 200/400 Texsolv heddles (205 mm), tie-up and leasesticks and sixteen warp sticks.

I am enjoying this loom very much. It's quieter with the tex. heddles. It has a good-sized sweet spot for weaving before having to advance. I like the tensioning system--easy to advance the cloth. I like how the ****** swings away and is held by friction back close to the heddles--this helps to create that nice sweet spot for waeving. Being a table loom, I was able to mount it on an up/down table so I can weave sitting or standing--helps minimize my chronic pain issues and is easier on my back and neck. Nice compact size especially when folded. My only complaints, which are minor, are the fixed raddle--not my favorite--especiall if I was to use thicker yarns and I don't like that I can more easily manipulate fibers on it as you can with a more tradional raddle. I will probably make my own. The other issue, is that the wood strips on the harnesses gradually lostens from the plastic ends when weaving for a while. They haven't popped out though and I just squeeze them back together before starting each project--take about 30 seconds total.
I love this loom. There is plenty of room between the breast beam and the reed, so you don't have to advance your warp as often. Folds up easily, nicely engineered, but I would prefer that the harness uprights were made of something sturdier than plastic. I also feel that for the price of this loom, it should come more fully assembled. The harnesses all had to be completely put together (there are 8!), and all cording run and set up for each harness, and the directions are ok, but not as good as they should be. There is a video for this on YouTube as well, also helpful, but the whole thing is is fast speed mode. I had a lot of trouble assembling, had to take out cords and redo them, used the wrong cord for the wrong thing, etc. loom very sturdy, with the exception of the harness uprights, and I love the way the loom operates. Harness Levers smooth and noise free. Great product overall. There is a carry bag for purchase separately, rather expensive, but would be nice to have to keep loom protected while traveling.
