Also, the looms come with 1 pre-rolled and threaded 150-thread, 6-meter black cotton warp rolled on a re-usable cardboard rolling tube.
SAORI PICCOLO: Designed for children as well as for adults of average size or smaller, this loom has a light-weight metal frame that is extendable, foldable, & highly portable. Although we recommend the following model which includes a shelf for convenient placement of accessories (scissors, bobbins, etc.),
a clamp to hold the folded loom closed, an attached bobbin winder, you may have a model without them with less money.

Each Piccolo loom includes: 1 two-harness set; 1 reed(5dents/cm); 1 pre-rolled and threaded 150-thread, 6-meter black cotton warp with re-usable cardboard rolling tube, and 1 tying rod with a clip. No other accessories are included; therefore, when ordering your Piccolo loom, we suggest you consult us regarding what accessories you will need to fit your plans.
Ordering your Loom: $250 deposit will be required for your loom order. We have no control how soon the order will come since it depends on the factory situation. When you pay with cash or check, you get 3%
(Accessories: see next pagediscount. Full payment for any loom ) is expected within 30 days of its arrival at our studio, unless otherwise arranged.
“Inside Set” Accessories
A key advantage of the SAORI loom is that one can remove an entire work-in-progress (harnesses, reed, warp rolled on tube, and tying rods) from the loom and replace it with a different “inside set”. Thus, one can use a single loom for multiple works-in-progress by using multiple “inside sets.”

Reed (available in a variety of densities): For SAORI 60 Series loom $168 / For Piccolo Series loom $128
