Beka Rigid Heddle Looms
These looms are good beginner looms, yet they are also used by professionals. Lightweight and portable, they feature beam teeth for ease in warping (nice for tapestry too!) and can easily handle up to 5 yards. They come in 20 or 24 inch weaving widths. Each includes one 10-dent heddle, 2 stick shuttles, a pickup stick, separate heddle blocks, sleying hook and complete instructions. All are finished with Danish oil, made of cherry and feature a ratchet tension system in addition to steel beamed friction system.
Options: A stand; extra rigid heddles
Suggestions: Good companions for these looms are the book "Hands on Rigid Heddle Weaaving", the video "Rigid Heddle Weaving", the Schacht or Leclerc warping pegs, or the Beka 4.5, Leclerc 6.5 or Beka 9 yard warping board, a tube or two of Maysville cotton warp and a skein or two of worsted wool yarn.
