- For Sale: Halcyon Rug Wool April 9, 2013
I bought some lovely Halcyon rug wool at the CHH Silent Auction. I realized I would need a couple more pounds for my project so I did a web search and found some more. The only catch was that I had to drive 9 hours to get it and there was almost 300 pounds of it. I now need to sell some of my over-abundance of beautiful extra-bulky weight 100% wool, spun in America from Halcyon in Maine or the now-closed Wilde Wool in Philadelphia. Red, turquoise, bright light green, orange or cream. It currently retails at $11.95 for 4 ounces or almost $48/pound. Only $20 per pound. I live in Clear Lake but can meet at the Guild House.
- Small Loom for Sale March 24, 2013
Small Schacht 4 harness floor loom; 18” weaving area; 2 reeds (8 and 12); 2 shuttles; attached accessories box and work shelf. Listed at $195. It can be seen at the Charity Guild of Catholic Women shop at 1203 Lovett Blvd., Houston. In excellent condition.

Schacht Mighty Wolf – 4 Now – 4 Later with Accessories
I am selling a lightly used Mighty Wolf in the 4 Now – 4 Later (now 4 with 10 Treadles) with attached Stroller and 8 and 10 dent reeds. Coming with it is 2 Boat Shuttles – 11″ Slim in Cherry and 11″ in Maple, Maple Hand Winder, bobbins and the matching floor loom bench in Maple.
This loom and everything included is all you need if you want to get started on your weaving! I am only getting rid of it because I am moving and will not be able to take it with me, otherwise everything is in PERFECT working order. Contact me for additional photos!
Asking $1500 (OBO) for what would be $3250 new from Schacht Spindle.
Prefer if someone could pick it up in the Houston Area, however if you are very interested another mode of delivery could potentially be arranged.
Please contact me at LKarbach@gmail.com or (512) 970-1722.
