String Heddles

May 15, 2010

I think these are the original shafts with strung heddles from the old rug loom. I understand they are time consuming to thread, but it might be fun to put them back on the loom for the next warp.  Looks like there might be a few repairs necessary.

    The first time I ever wove (it was rag rugs), I wove with heddles like the ones in the photo. I still have some of them stored in a cupboard, but I haven’t used them for years.

    It makes me think of “Cat’s in the cradle.”

    Oh my! It makes me think I could get texsolv on there in the time it would take me to sort them out! 😉 Have fun though, can’t wait to see what you come up with for a rug.

    There is another set with newer heddles, but the shafts are too long. I could replace the old ones… I have heard they take awhile to thread.
