Awesome news for thrifty and innovative weavers on Ashford looms!
Now you can mix and match dents in your Ashford Rigid Heddle or Knitters Loom with the new Vari-Dent Reed. An assortment of rigid heddle reed sections in a variety of dents and two different widths (approx 2" and approx. 4") can be inserted into the special rigid heddle frame for different sets in the same reed. You can vary the density of your fabric or use a variety of different weight yarns for your warp! Plus, you'll have enough pieces of each gauge to create smaller projects at any of 6 gauges! So, for instance, with a 24" loom, you can make a 10" scarf at any gauge, from 2.5 dpi up to 15 dpi! Even with the smallest loom, the 8" sample it, you'll have enough pieces to make a narrow scarf or bath scrubby cloths (two of the post popular uses of the mini loom) at any gauge! It's certainly worth the investment for you to up your production and gift game!
Like all Ashford reeds, the regular rigid heddle ones are natural wood and the Knitters Loom reeds are lacquered.
These may ship from my shop or directly from Ashford, depending on model.
Small sections are about 1.5-2" wide, large sections are about 3.5-4" wide
Shipped on time and artclub provided excellent service. I would make purchases from this dealer in the future. The variable reed dent was what I was looking for, for multiple sized yarn projects. I did have some difficulty fitting the pieces in so I took a pair of large scissors and trimmed to fit. Just finished warping and will soon see how it all comes together.
