Updated Feb 19, 2020. My newest loom model. The Hideaway Instruction/Travel rectangle loom. Can make to order. See video demonstration of this loom at https://youtu.be/5bqAFRN2-s4 or search youtube for "Hideaway Looms".
The 6" x 24" loom will also adjust to 2 shorter rectangles. Above it is shown full size with a scarf that was joined while both pieces were still on the loom. I have made a video of the "double stacking" weaving process and have posted it on my youtube channel - Hideaway Looms. I could make this loom in quantity for classes, guilds, etc. I will not have this on Etsy but you can inquire through this site.
Dec 21, 2019 - I am still recovering from knee surgery so can't ship out any looms as often. I will have my Etsy shop closed at times as I want to make the trip to town to ship out once a week. I can ship out on Jan. 7. If you contact me before then I could sell you one of the rectangle looms described below and ship it out that date. I can send a Pay Pal invoice for you to pay instantly.
A selling point on this Instruction/Travel loom - I can make it with the "Universal" feature, which means that it can slightly adjust at each to the 3 sizes to allow for a perfect pin arrangement if you want to use the other rectangle continuous weaving method, the old left-return method still used by some weavers.
10 x 60" Scarf loom. 3 in stock - $185 with free shipping.
Adjusts to 10x30, 10x40, 10x50 and 10x60 inches. This photo is from a customer, see her videos on youtube, search for "ThePacadashery". These prices are a discount from the Etsy price, plus I don't charge sales tax like Etsy now does for 35 US states.
Above - The 5 ' scarf loom set at the 9" width, next to longest length. I discovered the proper pin arrangement system to achieve a perfect weaving rectangle. This can be applied to any approximate rectangle length, based on the number of pins (nails) of the width. I also discovered (maybe you could say invented?) a good weaving method that is easy to use. I include those weaving instructions you can get at the top of this page.
I call it my scarf loom because it is long enough for an average scarf. I can make a 5' loom that has much wider choices, I guess I could call that a "shawl" loom. I do have a 'shawl' loom made that will weave a 5' x 30", 5' x 20" & 5' x 10" maximum lengths and all shorter lengths in those widths. I can sell it for $285, free shipping inquire for more on this custom loom.
It is a 6 piece set. Use the top and bottom long rails and the left end rail each time to create 10 different rectangles. The other 3 pieces are the movable right end rails. Change the setting at the lower left corner and choose the matching movable right end rail to change widths. Move the right end rail to pre-set positions to change lengths and still get a perfect pin arrangement for continuous strand weaving. Color coded marks show which pins will be the rectangle corners. Pins to be used for the initial strand turns are also marked with the same color. I call these the 'turning points'.
Above, an earlier version of my rectangle looms, with a wool scarf being taken off. The arrangement of the pins around the rectangle allow for there to be a perfect final weaving path for the last strand of the continuous strand weaving. This I discovered by trial and error after looking for this solution off and on for several years. I also found that a right-return rectangle continuous weaving method is easier to use.
Multiple-width rectangle looms. These looms have modular width adjustments, usually 3 widths, and also adjust in length. These basic looms consist of 6 wood pieces.
5 foot by 15" Hideaway Scarf Loom. 9", 12", & 15" widths. $235.00 with free shippng. I have 3 of these made.
72" Hideaway Medium Sett Rectangle Loom Has 10", 12" & 18" width choices.
72" Hideaway Rectangle Loom Is a larger version of the 'Scarf Loom' above. Also has the 5/16" or medium pin spacing. It has the maximum width of 18 inches which makes a weaving 4 'squares' long, or about 72". The other width choices are 9" and 12". Works just like the 5' model shown in photos above, but has a brace to keep the long rails from being pulled inward under yarn tension at the long settings. Makes for a strong long loom structure with the brace. Another advantage of the brace is that very short rectangles & squares can be woven on this loom, as the brace stabilizes the excess long rail ends to the right side. This makes this loom fully adjustable in that it can do short rectangles and an 18" square. The braces add 3 pieces to the set, making 9 oak wood pieces in all.

The red dot in the second photo is a 'turning point' that I followed when making the first single strand run.
Same loom changed to the middle width, at the next to longest possible rectangle. Makes a finished scarf about 10 inches wide when taken off the loom. This finished width depends on the thickness of yarn used, the thicker the yarn and the looser you weave, the wider the result.
This is the upper left corner of the new Scarf loom. The blue "A" marks were put on this photo to show how the assembly is done. The actual marks on the oak wood do not show when assembled. With this new design, this is the corner that stays connected whatever width or length you are using. That simplifies the positioning of the 'start' or 'S' logo. All my instructions for weaving use this corner as the starting corner, and markings for rectangle corners and turning points for the initial strand don't come out right if you don't start in the upper left corner. It is about syncing the loom orientation with the weaving instructions. The longest piece is 63" long, the box 65" long.
