I learned how to weave on a small handheld loom and fell in love with the process of turning my handspun wool yarn into small woven household items. The rigid heddle loom is a bigger loom perfect for a beginner weaver, yet not as large and bulky as a floor loom, so it’s a good loom to learn on to see if you enjoy weaving. Projects you can comfortably weave on a rigid heddle loom are scarves, shawls, baby blankets, tea towels, dishcloths, linens, coasters and table runners.
The Kromski Harp Rigid Heddle Loom is a beautifully crafted loom that folds up for storage or travel and also doubles as a warping board! As many weavers know, the larger warping boards can be difficult to store out of the way when in a small house, so this is a welcomed design feature.
The Harp loom is easy to put together with the tools you already have in your house with the easy to follow instructions. You can easily move this loom around where ever you go while experimenting with color and weave patterns. It’s fast to warp, lightweight, sturdy and well made. Choose from 3 sizes: 16 inch, 24 inch or 32 inch width.
Here’s a video I found on YouTube on weaving on the Kromski Harp loom
