Izzy Knits stocks the affordable and portable 24" Rigid Heddle Loom (60cm). It’s quick to warp, easy to use, and comes with everything you need to get started. It’s a great loom for those new to hand weaving and is the perfect size for creating beautiful homewares, such as placemats, table runners, hand towels, pillows and more.
Create beautiful fabrics using just color and texture or use pick-up sticks to create additional designs. Six (6) reed options allow for weaving with very fine to chunky, textured yarns. Loom comes with a 7.5 dpi reed; other reeds sold separately.
Made from silver beech hardwood, this loom is strong and robust, and can be used to create woven tapestries and wall hangings as well. The option of a second heddle kit for multishaft weaving gives this loom extra versatility for more experienced weavers. Pick up sticks and second heddle kits sold separately.

We're particularly fond of this table-top yarn swift because it's made in the USA by Beka, a family-owned workshop in Minnesota, making wooden toys, furniture and looms for more than 40 years.
Beka's Natural Hard Maple Yarn Swift features durable metal bearings (also made in the USA) for a consistently smooth winding process. It accommodates a wide range of skein sizes (28" to 72") and yarn types (thin to bulky), sits conveniently on any table top, and eliminates table scratching caused by clamps used to secure other types of swifts. Assembly is simple and takes just a few minutes; no tools required.
Ideal for winding twist skeins into balls by hand or with hand-cranked mechanical winders. Electric winders should be used only at low speed.
Izzy Knits customer review ... "I absolutely love this yarn swift. It was easy to put together and spins so smoothly. Best of all, my yarn doesn't snag on this like it does on my umbrella swift. I highly recommend!" —Debbie H (New York, NY).
