Resources for Drawloom (Double Harness, Damask) Weavers  

Sara von Tresckow - "When A Single Harness Simply Isn't Enough" $34.95

A comprehensive work in English that includes several types of double harness looms and their operation. Rather than a collection of projects and patterns, it is meant as a guide to either acquiring a drewloom or modifying an existing loom to do double harness patterns when desired.

The section on designing is meant to provide weavers with tools to create interesting textiles on their own.
