Hello!

Far too long ago, a friend and I adopted a loom. However, we were both busy and were never able to determine what kind of loom it was. I've looked through a number of books and online tutorials, but never saw anything exactly the same as it.  Huh The closest I can come is a rigid heddle loom, but in that case, I think it is missing a few parts. I'm hoping that my fellow craftsters can help me with identification so that I can began learning to use it. Any advice would be appreciated! Thank you!  Grin







As you can see, all of the dowels are stationary except for that one dowel in the slot with the pins. By removing the pins, its position in the slot can be changed.

Thank you again for any assistance you can provide!

I'm not sure what type of loom it is, but you could do some great tablet weaving on it.
I got all excited when I saw your pic, thinking how I could adapt it to suit.

I think it's called an inkle loom.  I used them as a kid in Grrrrll Scout
