Leclerc's 4 Shaft Counterbalance "Fanny" model looms are a favorite of many weavers.
Due to the ease of Treadle reach, the "Fanny" is favored by the average weaver for comfort over long weaving sessions. Leclerc's compact, solid design allows weaving a full range of fabric including rugs. All "Fanny II" model Looms incorporate Leclerc's exclusive Shed Regulator. This unique mechanism provides a quick simple switch from balanced to unbalanced weaves with a minimum of adjustment. This provides the same versatility as a Jack Loom but with the advantage of full control over top and bottom shed openings offered by the Counterbalance design. The Counterbalance shed is wide and clean on every pick over the full range of 4 Shaft weaves, including the higher tension rug designs.
