I love my loom

I received the 32” Rigid Heddle loom for Christmas. I had never tried weaving before but had always wanted to try. So I put this on my wish list. Well, I love my loom! It is beautiful! I can appreciate the workmanship that went into the making of the loom but also the detailed guide allowed me to jump right in and weave a scarf the first time I used it. I look forward to making many beautiful things.

Love This Loom!

Loom was promptly delivered and was easily assembled after first treating the bare wood with a furniture was polish. I’m ready to warp it and start a project!

Indirect Warping Option
All standard rigid heddle looms will have holes drilled in the bottom of the rails so you can use your loom as a warping frame for the indirect warping method.

You can purchase a set of RHWP - Rigid Heddle Warping Pegs if you wish to use your loom in this way.  There are 14 pegs included in the set, this will allow you to choose a variety of warp lengths. 

Some benefits of indirect warping are the flexibility to use one thread of one colour, it saves space, even warp lengths, better tension control.
