Large Backstrap w/shuttle


Handywoman large backstrap heddle is made from 1/4 thick Cherry and is approx. 9" x 9.5" and weights less than 7 oz.

These are made from Cherry, however if you'd like Walnut or Maple for your heddle just add a note at checkout and I'll check to see if I have that wood choice available.
When adding to your cart choose the design you'd like engraved onto your heddle abd choose the pattern you'd like. 
What is included:

1- backstrap heddle engraved

1 - #1 Handywoman walnut 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.
