The Cricket Loom is compact, capable, and cute with a 15" weaving width. The Cricket is made of high-quality maple plywood and hard maple and is left unfinished. Each Cricket comes with an 8-dent reed (sorry, no substitutions). We also have 5-, 10- and 12-dent reeds that can be purchased separately. Included are a threading hook, warping peg, table clamps, two shuttles, and two balls of yarn (yarn colors will vary).


15″ Weaving Width
The wider weaving width offers more flexibility in your choice of weaving projects, and this Cricket remains portable. Uses the same reeds as the 15″ Flip folding rigid heddle loom. Additional shuttles and pick-up sticks are available.

How does a rigid heddle loom make weaving fun and easy? When the heddle is moved from the neutral position to down or up positions, it creates a shed, or opening, where the weft can pass through. This makes weaving much quicker than picking each yarn up by hand as you would do with a frame loom. See below.

 

Down, up and neutral sheds

Down, up, and neutral sheds are created by moving the heddle to different positions.
