I recently purchased a barely used 8-inch sample it loom. It Came with the 7.5 dent heddle.... and I made 10 scarves in 10 days. I was convinced I needed the other reeds so bought 10, 12.5 and 15- dent. I ordered them from Paradise on a Tuesday and receive the package on Thursday from New Zealand !!!! As much as I love Ashford products— I have spinning wheels, knitters loom, drum carder... and now this little baby and her heddles—their service is stellar thanks to Paradise Fibers, and Brianna for such great service. Paradise Fibers is now my go to for fiber related tools
The Ashford reeds were exactly what I needed to complete my project.
The SampleIt reeds are well made, though like the loom the reed frame unfinished and you have to finish it yourself - but this is the only heddle that will fit the SampleIt loom. If you want to weave with bulky (#5) and extra bulky (#6) yarns this is the dent heddle you need. These yarns make wonderfully plush, thick, and warm scarves.
Excellent service, as always.
Love it the size is perfect and was easy to asssemble
