    Loom differences explained...

    I am often asked to explain the difference between the Ashford knitters, rigid heddle and sample it looms. They are in fact ALL rigid heddle looms! The basic differences are explained below.

    1. The knitters loom folds, comes lacquered, is pre-assembled and has a fitted carry bag. Choose from 3 weaving widths 30cm, 50cm, 70cm.

    2. The rigid heddle loom does not fold and requires assembly and optional waxing. Available in 4 weaving widths 40cm, 60cm, 80cm & 120cm.

    3. The sample it loom does not fold and requires assembly and optional waxing and is just a light weight compact version of the rigid heddle loom. Available in 2 weaving widths 25cm & 40cm..
