Item details

If you have been wanting to make a project using using a combinations of different weight/size yarns you have on a rigid heddle loom this is the EASY answer to your needs. With the Schacht Variable Dent Reed, you can assemble your own rigid heddle reed for the Cricket or Flip with different setts for different parts of the warp. The Variable Dent reed comes with an assortment of sections, each about 2 1/2" wide. Mix and match them to create a reed that will space the yarns the way you want them.

This is a mix-and-match rigid heddle reed. Remove the top of the frame and insert the rigid heddle sections. Each reed comes with a variety of sections in 5, 8, 10 and 12-dent; each section is about 2 ½" wide. You can use different dents to create different setts in the same reed. This is a great way to thread stripes of thick and thin yarns or to create different densities in a fabric, as shown in the fourth picture.

Many of you were probably thrilled to hear the news that Schacht now has a variable dent reed available for both the Cricket and the Flip rigid heddle looms. But what is it, what exactly does this mean for your weaving experience, and how do you go about using it?

First of all, what is it? Simply put, the variable dent reed is a rigid heddle reed with interchangeable 5, 8, 10, and 12 dent sections of reed. Each section is 2-3/8” in width, and you can mix and match these sections to create your own custom reed. The number of segments you receive varies with the length of the reed – get the details at our website.The overall weaving width will be slightly narrower than a traditional reed.

Let’s talk about when you might choose to use the variable dent reed. One of the most obvious ways would be to combine yarns of different weights in the same warp. Another option would be to create a crammed and spaced effect. This could be done either with yarn of the same weight across the reed, spaced differently, or you could choose to experiment with yarns of different weights at different setts. The variable dent reed is an opportunity to experiment and expand your weaving options in a way that is gentle on your yarn.

10" Cricket Variable Dent Reed includes: 2—5-dent, 2—8-dent, 2—10-dent, 2—12-dent sections
15" Cricket/Flip Variable Dent Reed includes: 4—5-dent, 4—8-dent, 3—10-dent, 3—12-dent
