On the Loom...

Now on the loom, a run of bespoke blankets designed especially for a customer. 

Our Dornier Rapier looms date from the 1980s. Rapier looms are shuttle-less, with weft threads woven across the warp by little pincer like carriers called rapiers. These looms weave much faster than the shuttle driven Dobcross loom. The Dornier looms weave around 300 picks (weft threads) per minute, whilst the Dobcross loom weaves around 90 picks per minute.
