Rigid Heddle Weaving Looms

Interested in weaving? Rigid heddle looms can get you started quickly, easily, and offer plenty of room to grow and experiment. Starting out can be intimidating: new vocabulary, strange equipment and complex instructions. You may think twice. Don't falter! Learning to weave is not as complicated as it seems, and rigid heddle looms are down right puppy dog friendly in comparison to large multi-shaft looms. Everything you learn from the experience will be useful if you "move on" to a bigger and/or multi-shaft loom. Most importantly, they're fun whether you're learning or already advanced!

Check out our Rigid Heddle Loom Buying Guide as well as other small Looms: Inkle, Card and Rigid Heddle Loom Reeds.
