"WEAVEBIRD"

Revolutionary Loom.

16, 24 or 32s

27", 36", 45" or 60" (Weaving Width)

====================================================

Weavebird is a centre closed dobby shedding mechanism. There are no jacks, no lams, no tie ups, no limitations on shaft combinations and no limitations of pattern repeats.

Two treadles, hinged from the back of the loom,
operate the shedding mechanism. Weavebird controls both the rising and sinking shed so the tension on the warp threads is always uniformly even. Because part of the warp threads rise while the balance sink, the yarn stretch is minimized.The loom has 2 treadles.
The right treadle opens the shed and the left treadle closes it. Due to Leclerc's unique Shaft counter-weight design, physical stress to operate it is minimized.

The treadling effort to operate those Loom is similar to operating a 4 shaft counterbalance loom.

Customer feedback
 
I haven't had much time lately to weave but did finish a 24 shaft pattern table runner.  It is a little more dense than I expected (even after finishing a 24" X 12" sample).   I made it for a friend with a very large table (finished runner after two times in tumble washer and ironing 24" X 82").   I downloaded the pattern as a WIF from handweaving.net. Every project that I have tried has been a pleasure to weave on the Weavebird.

Weaving on the weavebird loom is just like riding a bicycle.

============================================

The most important advantage for Leclerc is service. A.. and L..  have recognized names
but their service is not so good. With a good product and excellent service Weavebird will
 become the leader in the large computerized market.
