Rigid Heddle Looms: The Kromski Harp
As of June 2014, the "Harps" have become
the "Harps Forte", and have metal ratchets and pawls
and earth magnets to keep parts engaged regardless of the tension
or the angle of the loom. An upgrade kit for earlier models is
available (see below).
In January 2014, the Harps started to ship with
8-dent (threads/inch) heddles. If you are uncertain about the
set of a Harp heddle, place a ruler (in inches) on it and count
the holes and slots in an inch. Our Bouclé warps will work
with either an 8 or a 10-dent heddle.
A particularly attractive rigid heddle loom, made
from European alder wood with a clear finish, lots of curves and
turned pieces. A warping board is built in: turn the loom over and
use the pegs to wind your warp (five yards plus). Three sizes: 16",
24" and 32". The Harp folds (unwarped or warped), and
fits neatly into the Kromski tote bag. It comes with a 8-dent heddle,
2 stick shuttles, a pick-up stick, a threading hook, 2 clamps, a
warping peg, warping board pegs and the very helpful "Warp
Optional Accessories: Kromski Tote, extra heddles, heddle blocks
(for using 2 heddles for more complex weaving) and floor stand.
Three sizes: 16", 24" and 32".
Harp Floor Stand: For weavers who do not wish to hold their Harp
back end propped against a table or desk edge, there is a beautiful
floor stand. All the pieces have been turned, making for a striking
piece of woodworking. And note some of the features: your warping
board pegs (these come with the loom) can be used as ledges on either
side of the loom to hold shuttles, hold yarn or to keep other supplies
handy. Use the stand for weaving, for warping, and for storage (your
Harp can even be folded on the stand).
