Because the Ashford Sampleit rigid heddle loom is inexpensive and compact, it is an ideal first loom. I use one for quick projects and sampling. The loom is sturdy and easy to handle.
Rigid Heddle Weaving
A rigid heddle is a frame containing plastic or metal bars containing a hole in the center of each bar and each bar is separated by a space or slot. The warp yarn is threaded through the holes and in the slots. The rigid heddle then is raised or lowered causing the threads in the holes to either rise or fall. The weft is then thrown across the shed and beaten into position.
