The rigid-heddle loom gets its name from the heddle that is lifted and lowered. This heddle allows specific threads to be isolated in either a slot or a hole which work together to create patterning in your cloth. This loom has gained significant popularity and has become the primary loom for many weavers. With the rigid-heddle loom, the loom’s width determines the width of your piece, so be sure to find a loom that suits your desired projects.
