A set of heddles serve to separate the warp threads into two layers by anchoring one set, allowing you to move only the other set, to create a shed opening to pass your shuttle and weft through.
Inkle looms typically use string loops as heddles.
The wider your band warp, the more heddles you will need to hold in a fixed position the ‘Heddled’ (anchored) warp threads.
You may find that you need more heddles than automatically come with a purchased Kairos Inkle Loom.
You can create more heddles. Just be aware that they must be a very precise overall length in order to allow the unique Kairos 'fingers free' shed opener to open the Upper and Lower shed openings equally.
To make it easier for you to make properly sized heddles, we have made available a special heddle tying jig whose pegs are precisely distanced for just our Kairos inkle looms so that when you loop around the jig's pegs, and tie off, the resulting loop will be correctly sized for use on the Kairos inkle loom.
One of these special heddle tying jigs is automatically included with every Kairos inkle loom we sell. However, we do make them available for purchase in the event that a Kairos inkle loom owner needs a new one.
If 'Out of Stock', we are working on adding more as we speak. Won't be that long. Please check back again soon.
