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"!
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.
I love the the size of this loom. I have a samplet size ashford and love it but I wanted something a little bigger. I am having so much fun with it.
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.
