Hemslojden Boras – Swedish countermarch floor loom – Somerset  – £300

120cm weaving width with various other equipment.  See the following for a picture and further details: loom ad

Aase Walker’s Glimakra loom

The dimensions of Aase’s loom, which was purchased new, are as follows:  width  (beam) 43″  108cm.  height 55.5″   131cm.  height with countermarch  70″  178cm.  depth 38″  96.5cm. depth with extension  66″  167cm.  min.  depth  extended  84″  214cm.  There is also a bench.

The countermarch is made by Myrehed Var Textil.   I hope I have got that right, the stamp is somewhat blurred. The rear extension was made by me, using photographs, to Aase’s instructions.  It is not a permanent part of the loom and can be removed without detriment to it.  I have little idea as to the value of the loom and would like some advice on this.  Hope this is enough info to start things moving.I will start to compile a  list of all the other items and hope I  get the names right.
