Ashford looms

This is the only loom I have used so can't compare to others. However, these are beautiful, well made looms and I am well pleased.

Ashford rigid heddle loom

I bought the 24 inch size and I’m so happy with my choice!! Very easy to set up and use. I’m a beginner at weaving, and this loom has been a pleasure to learn on.

Easy to put together and well-made parts! Fantastic variety of accessories

This loom was easy to put together and start using, even for an absolute beginner like myself. I absolutely feel great in this purchase and really feel that I chose the right loom to start with. I have already seen the versatility it offers through watching others use it and have browsed the nifty accessories available. The wood is solid, the plastic parts feel sturdier than I expected, and the simple design lets the focus really be on the creativity you can put into your work. I would absolutely buy another Ashford loom and especially from Paradise Fibers. Their service has been excellent and I received the loom in about 3 business days from ordering!

Ashford Rigid Heddle Looms

I love my Loom. The loom was easy to put together but it was hard for me to put the stand. It would have been nice if there would have been a video for the bigger loom somewhere. I call your store but it was hard for them to help me not knowing and seeing the problem I was having. I finally was able to take it apart and do it again and it work. I would recommend to have someone put the stands together and video tape it for women that live alone and are doing things on their own.

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')
