A lovely buying experience and I am over-the-moon happy with the loom!

I did a lot of research before buying, including watching YouTube videos of the various looms, and decided that the Kromski company WILL NOT compromise on quality of their products! (sadly, unlike Ashford these days)! So I paid a bit more than Ashford prices, and went with the Kromski Harp Forte rigid heddle loom and it is a total delight! It's so rare in this day and age for parts to fit together perfectly, to receive ALL of the hardware parts and the correct hardware included, and for the product to look and function as advertised. KROMSKI DELIVERS! I'm a die-harde Kromski fan now. And also so glad to have decided on the rigid heddle loom instead of a multi-shaft floor model (by another manufacturer). The rigid heddle is more portable, takes up less room, and (I think) is easier/faster to warp. And it's portable! The Kromski Harp Forte loom is my "forever loom" and has become my new best friend! (I've packed tmy Ashford loom away in disappointment over it's design. Plastic rachet locks that will snap off with use and UV rays. Heddle blocks that allow the heddles to slide left-to-right (so double heddles don't match up) and fall down completely. A plastic warping hook. Nothing but grief! I learned my lesson and won't buy Ashford again!)

Heddles come in a variety of sizes called dents to allow you to control of number of ends per inch in your project.  The standard heddle with each Kromski loom is 8-dent.   Also available are 5, 8, 10 and 12-dent heddles.  As you expand your weaving interests, you may want to have more than one heddle size.

Additionally, you may want to try using 2 heddles of the same blockdent size at the same time.  This will allow you to approximate a 4-harness loom. The process is not as easy as a true 4-harness loom, but for the occasional need, this is a nice option.  If you are interested in doing this, order an extra set of heddle blocks to support the extra heddle.

Note: 32″ heddles do not have the top frame shaped as an arch. 

 

HEDDLE BLOCKS AVAILABLE SEPARATELY

Rigid heddles come in different dent sizes. It is important to consider the dent size of your heddle(s) before you choose a warp yarn. As the dent size number increases (5 to 8 to 10 to 12), the “thickness” of your warp material must decrease.

All rigid heddles are composed of slots and holes. Your warp threads must be able to pass through these holes and slots without resistance. As you raise and lower the heddle, the threads in the slots must slip so their elevation is not altered. As you beat your project, the heddle must slide forward and back without causing yarn to bunch up in the slots and holes. Up, down, forward and backwards – your rigid heddle must move easily.
