7" Sampler Rigid Heddle Loom w/ Engraved swirls
These are handmade rigid heddle looms. They are 15" x 9.75" not including ratchets and decorative knobs and is made from solid wood. The maximum size cloth that can be woven is about 7" or 6.5 off the loom. This little loom comes completely assembled and has dbl heddle stands installed. This set includes one loom and all the weaving equipment you see in the pictures as well as some lovely yarn to get you started (yarn and colors vary) . All the tools match the ratchets, pawls and warp beams where they are the same as the ratchets. The knobs on the end of the warp rods will vary and will not always look like the ones shown.

Instructions on how to weave are not included, this information is freely obtained on the internet and many wonderful books are available as well.
