We're pleased to offer you the Leclerc Nilus II hand weaving loom in weaving widths of 36", 45", and 60" in jack-type, counterbalance, and countermarche configuration with a stabilizer foot for superior stability. This is a great loom for weavers of all skill levels who are interested in a solid, durable loom with removable front and back beams to facilitate warping. We have customers doing serious production weaving on Nilus II looms (and loving them).

Shipping & Delivery
Your loom will be shipped directly from Leclerc to your continental U.S. (lower 48 states) address via ground service. There is no shipping charge for physical street addresses in this area. Turnaround is good; however, orders placed during Leclerc's summer and holiday breaks or while they (or we) are exhibiting at trade shows may take a bit longer. If time is critical for you, kindly contact us before placing your order and request an estimated delivery date. We are required to collect sales tax on shipments to Virginia addresses.
Your loom will arrive partially disassembled for easier handling, with detailed assembly instructions. If you are handy, you should have no problems assembling your loom. Otherwise, enlist the assistance of a friend. When in doubt, read the instructions. If you are located in our region, we can provide hands on assistance for an hourly labor charge and travel mileage.
Neither we nor Leclerc are able to accept returns. Warranty service is provided by Leclerc. Their policy is simple and straightforward: "All Leclerc looms and accessories are guaranteed for one year, covering materials and workmanship. Parts are replaced free of charge upon proof of defect."
Please let us know how we may be of further assistance. We appreciate your patronage of our independent, locally owned weaving and yarn shop, and thank you for referrals.
