Please note, Majacraft will be taking a much needed vacation over the holidays and summer here in NZ from 21 December. You may continue to place orders but we cannot be certain they will be able to make and ship them before the 21st. Production will resume 22 January 2018, and we can take orders during the break so your items will be ready to go in the new year, but please anticipate this delay. Wishing you a wonderful holiday season and a very happy New Year!
Weaving is such a fantastic way to use your yarns! Majacraft offers us the tools we need to truly release our creativity and weave with freedom and versatility. The Dynamic Heddle loom is unique among Rigid Heddle looms, with features that provide maximum choices in both warp and weft, along with a heddle system that is not only versatile but also easy to use with magnetic clips and variable reeds.
The wonderful Circular looms have a shared history between Majacraft and Fiberygoodness, originally developed to our design for release with the Journey to the Golden Fleece creative spinning course, these looms have proven very popular and the circle weaving craze has spread!
We hope you will join us in our passion for weaving! Scroll down tutorial videos!
Majacraft Dynamic Heddle Loom
The Majacraft Dynamic Heddle loom enables innovative and creative weaving. Instead of a fixed set of reeds, this loom features laser cut reed segments in different dent sizes. You can choose to weave with a set of the same reeds, or try mixing them up for warping with thick and thin yarns in your warp! Finally the best solution for weaving with art yarns, rather than squashing them in as weft only (and the resulting 'flat' weaving this creates) you can allow your textured and art yarns to breathe n the warp, giving you a wonderful drape in your final weaving and allowing your yarns to stretch out in all their glory along the length of your piece!
Rather than awkward wooden blocks to juggle the heddle into when weaving, the Dynamic Heddle loom uses rare earth magnets to secure the heddle in place. It makes the weaving movement fast, easy and most importantly fun. The heddle mounts have been machined in such a way that the loom supports double heddle weaving from standard.
The loom has removable legs that allow comfortable use on a tabletop, or alternatively an adjustable angle stand is available.
The Dynamic Heddle loom folds in half so is very portable. This keeps it very compact when not in use or easy to move if you wish to transport it, even with your weaving still on the loom.
Included with the loom is:
- 1 24" Dynamic Heddle Loom
- A set of 9 reed segments (EITHER 9x4dpi reeds OR 3x2dpi, 3x4dpi, 3x6dpi reeds
- Three different sized stick shuttles
- Warping tool (hook)
- Direct warping block (three peg)
- Majacraft bench clamp
- four legs
- Warp cords
Majacraft Wave Shuttle
The Majacraft Wave Shuttle is a fantastic tool for creating texture in your weaving, especially suited to creating an open weave design. The shuttle is 50cm (20inches). Made of lightweight bamboo it has two different 'wave' patterns, one on each side, so you can vary your weaving by simply flipping the shuttle over. This great tool gives you shuttle and beater in one, creating one easy movement when weaving! Check out the use of this awesome accessory in Suzys video on the weaving page here or on the Majacraft YouTube Channel!
Majacraft Stick Shuttles
These are the three sizes of stick shuttle that also ship with the Dynamic Heddle Loom. They are great for any loom! Made of lightweight and super strong bamboo they make weaving a breeze. 20cm (7.8") 34cm (13.5") and 50cm (20")
Majacraft Dynamic Heddle Loom Stand
The Majacraft loom stand for the Dynamic Heddle Loom has been designed to be easy to use. The loom fits in two slots and has two finger screws for the braces. The stand uses a pair of sliding braces that allow the angle of the loom to be adjusted until it is perfect for you. These braces can be locked into position so the loom is very secure. The feet spacing is wide so the loom is stable and steady while you are working.
There are also a pair of threaded inserts on the horizontal brace that are added for aftermarket accessories. If you have a creative idea for a little enterprise utilising these screw holes then contact us and we can send you the dimensions!
This stand will hold your loom excellently during weaving and will store it compactly in place should you wish to fold it up between sessions
