We are selling one of our Hattersley Looms

Posted by Ann Cruickshanks on

Due to lack of use, we are selling our second Hattersley Domestic Loom (mark 1), with 2 shuttles and 30 pirns.  It's in great condition, fully refurbished by us.  There is a rough warp on the machine which we put on when it was first assembled and haven't used since.   Every part of this machine has been made good, some wood and all the leather has been replaced.  It's good for many years to come. We are looking for £2500 for this and if you are interested please get in touch.
