Let’s Talk About Looms & Loom Stands

Last week, we received variable loom stands from Ashford, for their Rigid Heddle looms. We have adjustable loom stands for the Knitters Looms coming soon. We thought we’d take a minute to showcase these products, and explain the differences between both types of looms.

Both the Rigid Heddle loom and the Knitters loom are rigid heddle looms. Wait… whaaat? It’s true!

The Knitter’s loom was developed with knitters in mind! The Knitters Loom is a light, foldable, and extremely portable loom, you can take it with you, even WITH the weaving still in place! The Knitters Loom is available in 3 widths, 30cm (12″), 50cm (20″), and 70cm (28″).

The Rigid Heddle Loom is just as great as the Knitters Loom, the main difference is it’s not foldable. It’s available in 4 widths, 40cm (16″), 60cm (24″), 80cm (32″), and 120cm (48″).
