This loom was bought new by John and is in very good condition. Brand new, this loom costs $1425. Local pickup in North Granby. It comes with a 10 dent reed, castle and has wheels to move it around.

Quote by Harrisville Looms: "As one of the most popular workshop looms on the market, the versatile little 22/6 is ideal as a first loom or as a second loom to have for smaller projects and sampling. The suspended harnesses allow for a smoother, quieter action and won't break fine warp threads as easily as stationary harnesses can."
