Rigid Heddle Loom
This affordable, portable and versatile Ashford rigid heddle loom is quick and easy to use and simple to assemble. Everything you need to get started is included in the kit – just add yarn! The built-in second heddle option allows for double width, layer or density weaving as well as additional patterns.
Made from Silver Beech hardwood, this is a super strong, versatile, and thoughtfully built loom perfect for creating garments and homegoods. The Ashford Rigid Heddle Looms come in four widths and each loom comes with a 7.5 dent reed, two shuttle sticks, a double end threading hook, clamps and a peg for warping and holding the loom while weaving if desired, a weaving guide that will teach you everything you need to get warping + weaving (great for beginners + experienced folks alike!). All of these looms also have a built-in second heddle option (second heddle not included) and indirect warping option (pegs not included).
It's easy to teach yourself how to warp and weave on this loom - Ashford has super video tutorials - head over here to get started. These looms come unfinished and require building (which takes about one hour and there is a video tutorial here).
