Megado, our flagship loom, is a multi-harness dobby loom with unique innovations, that make weaving a real joy. Its attractive appearance is due to the advanced engineering and the use of lacquered ash hardwood.

The dobby loom is available with 16 or 32 harnesses and in 40, 70, 90, 110 and 130 cm (15 3/4”, 27 5/8”, 35 3/8”, 43 1/4“ and 51 1/4′′) weaving width. You can choose between a mechanical dobby and an electronic interface*. The complex castle section is already pre-assembled. Included are: a large shelf, built-in raddle, a stainless steel reed 40-10 (10 dpi), 900 to 1700 pre-mounted heddles (392 mm), lease and tie-up sticks and sixteen warp sticks.

Dobby looms have a dobby system, which is used to program the harness combinations for the weave pattern. Dobby is short for ′′draw boy′′ which refers to the weaver’s helper who was used to control the warp thread by pulling on draw threads. The dobby mechanism replaces the treadle/lam combination of the traditional floor looms. The performance of a multi-harness loom is vastly improved by using a dobby mechanism, as it overcomes the major problems associated with the use of a large number of treadles.

A dobby loom allows you to select the combination of shafts for every shed opening you wish to make. The great advantage of a dobby loom is that it avoids the necessity and the labour involved in making multiple tie-ups to treadles, positioned underneath a loom. An investment in a Louët Dobby ensures many years of comfortable, ergonomic and productive weaving.

A mechanical dobby is a program bar with pegs. The numbered holes in the program bars correspond with shafts of the loom. If you want a shaft to be lifted, you place a peg in the corresponding hole of the program bar. The number of program bars forming the chain, correspond to your weaving pattern. However, if the number of program bars becomes very large, you may want to consider an electronic dobby due to cost and functionality.

The electronic interface will give you almost unlimited shaft combinations using either the built in Louet web interface software, or a computer and 3rd party software from Fiberworks PCW, Patternland, Weavemaker, Weave It, WeavePoint, Winweef or Pro Weave, which all work with the Louët electronic interface.

Both Octado and Megado looms feature a counter march shed. This is accomplished by lifting the back beam at the same time as the shafts are being lifted. The beam movement also compensates for changes in warp tension as the shed is made. An innovative construction ensures the action of the well-balanced treadle, very light in operation. This main treadle and also the optional weaving bench are adjustable in height to accommodate the weaver’s physical requirements.  Adjusting blocks can be added to the treadle and footrail to ensure a comfortable weaving position.

Of course, the Octado and Megado looms also have the patented Louët floating breast beam system, just like the Spring and Delta looms. This unique warp tension control system allows the weaver to re-set the warp tension each time the warp is advanced, back to the tension before the warp was released. These innovative design features give our Octado and Megado looms an indisputable advantage over other competitive looms. No other multi-harness loom treadles as light and creates as large a shed, even with a very high tension on the warp.
