Leena is the smallest loom in the Toika range.
Made from carefully selected birch hard wood she is suited to weaving all kinds of cloth from fine cloth to lightweight rugs.
The weaving width is 60cm (24 inches) and 600 heddles, lease sticks, a reed and 2 stick shuttles are supplied. There won't be a limit on the warp you might want to prepare before she arrives!
There is only a minimal amount of building required before the loom is ready to start weaving.
The sliding beater allows for a good solid beat when required and can be just as gentle when needed. Stainless steel pawls ensure great tension.
Leena doesn't fold which for some will be a disadvantage but a folding mechanism can become a weak point and Leena is sturdier for not having one. However she will still fit in the boot of most cars if you want to take her out to Guild meetings or workshops.
Unless you advise otherwise she will arrive with a 12 dent per inch reed which will give a good range of setts without the need for the purchase of an additional reed until you feel you need one.
Shipped directly to your UK mainland address at no extra charge or you are very welcome to collect from us in Lutterworth Leicestershire.
Please enquire for shipping to Highlands and Islands or Mainland Europe. We usually have a Leena available for immediate despatch, but if showing out of stock please enquire for current lead times.
A matching stand is available to buy that means she doesn't hog the dining table and is just the right height for weaving whilst sitting on a dining chair or the optional Laila bench.
Additional heddles are available at the time of purchase if required or can always be added at a later date if you find you need them.
Warp and front beam aprons can be fitted at the fitted at the factory for an additional charge.
Regardless of which loom from the Toika range you think you would like to buy we would really like you to get in touch with us to talk through what you need to make sure you purchase a loom that is suited to your needs and situation. Better still come and see us, see Leena in action and and have a go at weaving on her yourself. Don't forget we won't hesitate to recommend another make or model of loom if we think it would suit you better, and we will give you all the follow up help and advice you need. Your satisfaction is as important to us as the sale.
