Product Overview

8-Shaft Norah Loom 


Designed for lightness and portability, our Norah table looms are complete weaver’s tools. They have graded length shaft control keys so fingers can easily identify which keys to lift or return. Warp control pawls and ratchets are outside where the weaver can easily reach them. Changing sheds is an extraordinarily smooth action because cords run over 16 maple wood pulleys, never dragged over rods or around eyelets. 

Norah allows for secure beater stowage. Norah breast/back beams are 1-1/4" hard maple dowels with embedded cross dowel connectors. Cross dowels can be tightened without fear of them pulling out, and allow users to remove the breast/back beam and replace it with the 4mm wrench.


Norah's shed is more than adequate for flat shuttles & most boat shuttles.


Double pawls, back and front, make 32 stops per turn.


Modern looms attempt to capture the best of John's designs utilizing ApplyPly for various parts to decrease cost and add features (such as beater stowage on Alice and Norah) that are unavailable on Original looms.

Quick Fold: unique to Modern, Quick Fold requires the user to fully remove two thumb screws and loosen the other two. Looms with Quick Fold can be folded with tension on a warp in place.
We also provide a spot to securely stow your beater/reed assembly when not warped -something Original Woolhouse looms don't include.


Woolhouse looms have three beater positions. The beater is not connected to the base, allowing users to quickly move it between warp advances. The beater position closest to the weaver holds the beater in quick fold.


Rubber feet provide protection for table top.


Ratchet & Pawl: Wood ratchet and pawls delightfully turn the beam along 32 stops.

Mimi Loom Stand: 




A folding stand is a great addition to your Woolhouse table loom. Velcro straps secure the stand closed when not in use, and secure the loom to the stand when in use. Embedded magnets hold a 4mm wrench which can tighten loom & stand connections. Your breast beam sits 31” high.   



Table Loom Bench:



A handsome, handy Table Loom Bench. The 9" x 20" seat hinges up to open a convenient storage box. The seat height is adjustable in 1" increments from 14" to 22". One of our table looms on its stand with a table loom bench in front makes a pretty package. All ¾” ApplePly. Natural Danish Oil finish.

    Wonderful Reboot

    Posted by Linda S. on 2nd May 2023

    I am an owner of an original Margaret, which has been a workhorse for me for many years. I was excited to see the Woolhouse looms in production again, as I was looking for a smaller 8-shaft loom. I saw these for the first time at Convergence in 2022, and was sold. I've been weaving steadily on the Norah for the last 9 months and it has been a pleasure to use. All the features of the original Woolhouse looms were maintained - the smooth pulley action, the easy and satisfying click of the levers, the fine adjustment of the ratchet brakes, the moveable beater. And the design upgrades are all welcome improvements. The ability to fold the loom completely flat, even warped, makes it very portable. Moving the turn handles to the opposite side of the ratchets makes it easier to reach back and advance the warp. The cleverly designed stand makes set-up quick and easy. I was disabled while I recovered from foot surgery, and I found it fast and easy to unfold and set up the loom, all while sitting on a chair. I highly recommend this loom.
