Carved Backstrap Heddles

Carved Backstrap Heddles

PriceFrom $59.99

Handmade carved backstrap loom.  These are made from solid wood and are 1/2" thick to 1/4" thick where the patterns holes are located.    Not sure what to start with? Get the 9 short slot. With it you can make bands for 5, 7 and 9 pattern threads. To go with it, I highly recommend Susan J. Foulkes' book "Weaving Patterned Bands" for beginners. It has great information to get you started. (a wonderful customer suggested the line above :) )

A shelac and wax  finish has been applied.   Choose from the following heddles:

Reproduction Circa 1860 Horse design(7 3/8 x 4 3/4")
Pig carved heddle (6 3/4 x 5")
Rooster  (6 3/4 x 5")

Fleur-de-lis (6 3/4 x 5")

Compass (6 3/4 x 5")

The Reproduction heddle is a replica of a Native American Heddle, Mesquakie, Circa 1860
The Durham Weaver is a great source for band weaving. This video demonstrates the double hole heddle.

Another good source for backstrap weaving
