One of Leclerc's most popular Table looms, the Voyageur was originally designed for the travelling weaver to take to shows, demonstrations and conferences. It is an excellent loom for both beginners and experienced weavers alike, delivering full multi-shaft functionality for complex weaves in a light, small package, folding to allow easy transport and/or storage. There are now a total of 8 different versions of the loom available in 3 different weaving widths.
The phenomenal success of the original 8 shaft Voyageur loom has lead to the design of a number of different versions of this loom. With new models added in the last few years, there is now a Voyaguer loom to match every weaver's requirements!
There are now three basic Voyageur loom models, each with a number of versions:
All Voyageur Looms have 4, 8, 12 or 16 front mounted levers that can be easily activated with either hand and which operate smoothly and use a unique magnetic locking mechanism that eliminates noise.
In all looms, the same steel supports, used to lock the loom in place when being used, are employed to hold it closed when folded for travel. A newly designed Lashing system simplifies attaching the warp fibres to the Warp and Cloth beams. Setting up the loom is as simple as unpacking it and threading the heddles on the shafts and to make things easy, all tools needed are included.
The 9 1/2" and 15 3/4" Voyageur looms come complete with a custom made denim carrying bag that includes a pouch for tools and a specially designed (1" profile) shuttle made of Cherry.
The levers on the Voyageur looms are set with #1 (shaft closest to the weaver) on the right side but can be reversed by the buyer or in the factory at no-charge if specified on the order. A Swinging Beater Option can be installed in the loom at no charge, allowing the reed to pivot instead of the regular fixed beater. If both modes of operation are desired, the Swinging Beater can be ordered below as an option allowing the weaver to have both (beater change can be made in a few minutes). The Folding Table can also be used for the Voyageur 9 1/2" and 15 3/4" looms to make them floor standing while still using the overhead levers (pictured at left). A special Loom Stand with side-trays is available for the 24" Voyageur loom.
On all looms, Texsolv heddles can be ordered at no charge to replace the default inserted eye heddles and a 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 11 or 15 dent reed can be substituted for the standard 12 dent reed shipped with the loom. These should be specified in the order. For the 24" looms, the second warp beam option (same as the Dorothy) is the only other option.
