Benefits
  1. Quality: The A-Series was engineered with production weaving in mind, and its features support an unprecedented consistent woven product. The loom is used by professionals and complex weavers across the globe to produce yards of word-class fabric.
  2. Speed & Efficiency: fly shuttle options, along with auto-cloth advance and storage mean the weaver is left to focus on pick speed and pace without stopping to advance the warp or to wind it up. Automatic warp tension means the warp tension is set only once and remains constant throughout your entire project. Sandpaper beam keeps warp tension on the warp and storage tension is set separately to ensure a great looking product. 
  3. Production Capacity: With AVL's 1 yard (circumference) sectional beam large quantities of fabric can be woven off with one warp (up to 100 yards in some cases). The addition of multiple beams facilitates even more warp capacity and adds design opportunities.  
  4. Unlimited Design Potential: Compu-Dobby® and 40 Shafts - need we say more? Unlock your full potential in design with the software of your choice. All .wif files are compatible with our looms. Mechanical Dobby Systems (up to 24 shafts) are a great alternative to computer technology but offer the same weaving speed and increase design potential. 
  5. Comfort and Longevity: The open-frame design makes the loom extremely accessible. Warping, threading, and weaving can can all be done in comfort. Electric or Pneumatic harness lift systems can be added to make treadling as easy as clicking a button.  Weave for hours without fatigue.  
  6. AVL Quality GuaranteeAVL Looms are built to last a lifetime and to endure the rigors of production hand-weaving. We back each new loom purchase with a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee and a lifetime of support. We'd love to have you as part of the AVL family! 

To complete your A-Series Loom order, you must add a beater and one or more beams.
