Rigid Heddle Loom Resources

Rigid Heddle Weaving is #1  with Cotton Clouds Customers!

    I often wonder, “What is driving this new interest in weaving?” My guess is that we all love yarns, their sensuous texture, dazzling colors and the sense of accomplishment we find in working with them.  Trying a Rigid Heddle Loom has these advantages:
  • TEST THE WATERS.  For many of us that have been knitting and crocheting for years, and are searching to explore something new, rigid heddle weaving is the perfect way to test the waters in weaving.
  • CHEAP THRILL. It doesn’t involve an expensive loom or the space required to house it!  If it’s not for you, you can always pass it on to your grandchild, who too is yearning to learn to weave!
  • BUSY LIFESTYLE. For others, like myself, who have been weaving for years, the convenience and portability of a smaller rigid heddle loom fits into our busy lives.
  • QUICK & EASY. The direct method of warping a rigid heddle loom means you can have a scarf on the loom in an afternoon and start weaving right away.
  • FABRIC MAGIC.  Plus there is just something intriguing about watching the fabric develop right before your eyes and so quickly and easily.
