Large Backstrap heddle w/Shuttle only

Large Backstrap heddle w/Shuttle only


Cherry back strap heddle with sami shuttle is included in this purchase.
When adding to your cart choose the design you'd like engraved onto your heddle and choose the pattern you'd like.  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 :) )

1 - heddle - 1/4" thick solid wood, approx 9 1/8x9.75" (6 oz)
1 - Sami sword shuttle 

I have not included on how to weave but have included instructions on how to warp your new loom. You can find a wealth of information on band weaving, Sami weaving and backstrap weaving on YouTube. The instructions are digital and will be a sent to your email address once you've made your purchase.
Here is a great beginners article.

Books I recommend are:
Norwegian Pick-Up Bandweaving by Heather Torgenrud
Susan Faulker has a few really great books you can get them as digital versions rather inexpensively as well as the hard covers. Her blog is here and she is another great source for pattern weaving.

Another good source for backstrap weaving
