"Liisa" type (full details on Toika website)
Countermarch loom - massive sheds!
texsolv tie up for four shafts, extra texsolv can be arranged.

Made from gorgeous light wood Finnish birch, this loom is strong enough to weave rugs and home textiles but also with a light enough touch to weave delicate fabrics too. Perfect for a studio or home loom. I personally think the Toika looms are the best looking of all the classic floor looms. :-)
With 8 shafts you can weave complicated patterns. The floor space of the loom is small for the capability - other loom makes like the Glimakra "standard" are comparable, but are much larger in size. Great for home or production weavers.
There is space to add extra shafts if you want to increase the design options, up to 16 shafts. If you really want to, you can add a computer aided option which connects to your computer- all available from Toika.
The loom comes with a reed and bench which sits inside the loom when not in use. Everything you need except the yarn!
It is really easy to take apart and put back together again. It is constructed with two end frames, and several cross pieces and held together with pegs. One person could construct it alone, but it is faster with two people helping. Easy to take down and store if you need the space.
Feel free to ask me any questions. Shipping can be arranged for the UK and Europe, collection from Cambridge
The pictures are a stock images, not of the actual loom, but of the same type. It is in used condition, but it still looks totally gorgeous. It is probaly from the 1970's or 1980's.
