Second Heddle Kit




Please note: All Ashford Rigid Heddle looms made after August 2018 come standard with double heddle side posts. All Ashford Knitters Looms made after April 2019 come standard with double heddle side posts. 

For multi heddle weaving. Kit includes two support blocks that are easy to attach as your rigid heddle has predrilled holes.

Instructions for weaving with the two heddles and patterns are included. Use two reeds to weave at a denser sett, to weave more complicated patterns, or to weave double width or double layer projects! For a double layer project and detailed warping instructions please download instructions from the Ashford website here.

Buy another reed (identical to the one you have) and you will double your ends per inch. For example two 12.5dpi (50/10) reeds will give you an amazing 25 ends per inch (100/10)!
