A friend loaned me her 8 harness Varpapuu (Finnish) table loom, which was a gift from her mother. The loom is no longer made, so when it came to me I gathered all the information I could find about it. Over time I have received many emails from people who have this loom and in search of manuals or information about the loom. I am happy to share mine! I have an 8 page PDF titled “Dressing the Loom (Model Kothe)” that was sent to me by a weaver in England some time ago. This document was produced by Oy Varpa-Looms Ltd. Finland (on the bottom of the cover page), and contains many photographs and drawings. I also have an 8 page PDF document titled “How to Tie Up a Varpapuu Loom.” How to Tie Up a Varpapuu Loom.” I don’t remember where I got that, but the original document looks like it was typed manually and contains drawings.
