From Jenny Bennett:

For sale — Toika 60″, 16 harness, countermarche loom with bench for sale $900. This loom is put together with pegs, so is easy to take apart and reassemble and can be used with any number of the harnesses (using 8 now) This is a big enough loom to weave anything you want. I will take lots of pictures before disassembly, will help you put it up, and will even deliver (for a TVHS member). Contact Jenny if interested.
