    AVL Loom for Sale

    60” wide, 16 shaft AVL dobby, fly shuttle loom. This is the loom on which Catharine Ellis did all of her initial testing and weaving of woven shibori. She is ready to work on a smaller scale.


    Automatic advance system

    Sectional beam (some pegs currently missing but they are available to be re-inserted)

    Texsolv heddles

    Track and mount system

    Air powered harness lift

    Selvedge warp rollers

    Three 60” reeds (10, 12, 20 epi)

    Two AVL fly shuttles and a dozen (or so) bobbins

    Air Compressor and hoses

    Double box fly shuttle, currently air powered. This can be configured for manual fly shuttle (parts included). Fly shuttle can be removed, and loom can be used with a hand-thrown shuttle.


    This loom is available for a suggested donation $1500 (or best offer) to Local Cloth

    Buyer must come to Catharine’s studio and dismantle the loom. Catharine and her husband are willing to transport the loom in a truck within 50 mil
