This affordable and portable rigid heddle loom is quick and easy to use. Now comes with the 2nd heddle block set built in!! Having a second heddle allows you the flexibility to weave double width, double layer, double density fabrics as well as allowing you to do exciting patterns and techniques...
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!
I have 3 Ashford RH looms and I love them. That being said, the stands made things easier and more comfortable with the exception of double heddle weaving. The Handi Handles are a major help, especially if you put some velcro on them to hold them in place better. Thanks so much to Brietta and all the staff at Paradise for all their help with EVERYTHING. Weave on. Loretta

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.
