The reeds were exactly what I needed to try new yarns and projects
Fantastic! I will buy another reed soon so I can do double heddle.
I bought unfinished reeds to finish myself. They are simple but sturdy and work just fine.
I finished mine after lightly sanding and put it together easily. The cranking mechanisms are solid and turn the beams smoothly. All seems to be quite solid. Nice size to be able to take on trips. I read on another site that someone was displeased that it stained unevenly. If you are going to stain it try a wood sealer first that can take a stain following the seal. It will even out the porosity and take the stain evenly.
The Ashford reeds were exactly what I needed to complete my project.
