Ashford loom

I’m very happy with this loom. It was easy to assemble. I’m a beginning weaver, and Ashford has many helpful videos on YouTube. The loom arrived very quickly- all the way from New Zealand! Paradise also had a helpful video that helped me select my loom.

Beautiful loom

My husband said this was very easy to put together and very well manufactured. I have already made one shawl with it and another is well on its way. The wood is beautiful and everything works well and as it should.

What a nice loom!

My recent purchase of my 24” rigid heddle loom is perfect for smaller projects I can complete without the bulk of my 48” loom. I really like both looms but this one is so much better for smaller projects, and Ashford has high quality products that I don’t think I’ll buy any other brand.

Highly recommended!

This is a great loom--big enough to do all sorts of projects, small enough to work on in my not-so-big home and take on longer trips. Paradise Fibers provides great information and advice and ships very promptly. Thanks again!

There are also 2.5, 5, 7.5, 10 and 12.5 dpi (10, 20, 30, 40 and 50/10cm) reeds available so you can weave everything from fine to textured yarns.

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.


 

The approximate maximum warp lengths for each size loom are:

RH400 - Rigid Heddle 40cm (16") -  4.7m (15.5')

RH600 - Rigid Heddle 60cm (24") - 6.7m (22')

RH800 - Rigid Heddle 80cm (32") - 8.7m (28.5')

RH1200 - Rigid Heddle 120cm (48") - 12.7m (41.5')

We carry the Stands for these looms as well as suitable reeds.
