Gorgeous, Sturdy Loom

I love my Ashford 48" rigid heddle loom! It is large - keep in mind you'll need 48" for the loom and 48" on either side to pass the shuttle through. Luckily I have a room I can dedicate to weaving. I had some issues with two of the pawls not wanting to move over the pins so I would need a tool to move it over. Now that I have been weaving for a few weeks, the issue has seemed to resolve itself. It is sturdy and beautiful and I'm happy I bought the 48"!

Beautiful loom for reasonable price

I am an absolute beginner but usually adept at picking up new craft hobbies. I had been researching online before investing. Loom is beautiful and was fairly easy to assemble and set up. Have started a project already and am making some mistakes but learning from them. Picked Paradise Fibers for their price incentives and discounts.

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.

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.
