Heddles come in a variety of sizes called dents to allow you to control of number of ends per inch in your project. The standard heddle with each Kromski loom is 8-dent. Also available are 5, 8, 10 and 12-dent heddles. As you expand your weaving interests, you may want to have more than one heddle size. In general, the yarn size appropriate for each heddle is as follows:
12 dent -- fingering weight yarn, or 5/2 cotton 10 dent -- sport weight yarn, or 3/2 cotton 8 dent -- worsted weight yarn 5 dent -- bulky weight yarn
I love my Kromski! I haven't used the new heddles yet, but delivery was super fast. I'll deal with Fancy Fibers again!😊❣

I am extremely grateful to Mary for ensuring I got the exact heddle I needed. I was misinformed by the salesperson at the shop where I originally bought my loom on the sizes of heddles that came with it. So, when I ordered an extra heddle from Mary, I unwittingly bought one that was the --exact-- same size as one I already had. Mary was very kind and patient to work with me in returning the heddle I didn't need and exchanging it for another one she had available.
Thank you for your time and grace, Mary!

I am brand new to the world of weaving, but very excited to try it out. Thank you for getting this to me quickly, so I can start learning :)
