Ask me about layaway on my looms and wheels.
In early 2022 USPS began imposing length surcharges for all packages 22 and over ($4) and an even higher surcharge for packages 30" and longer ($15). So it's a good opportunity to purchase other lightweight, inexpensive items to fill the package since the surcharge is applied once to each package. I will refund all shipping charges on additional light items that can fit inside the box.
Small shuttles, warp sticks and pick up sticks can ship First Class Mail so if you prefer that, let me know and I can refund the shipping difference. Here you will find all sizes /types of weaving tools for the Harp Forte looms in widths of 4, 8, 12 and 16".
WEAVING SHUTTLES: (Sold Individually) - Beautifully finished to match Kromski products, they have beveled edges for comfort of hand and to glide effortlessly through your shed without snagging on yarn or thread. These smaller shuttles ship with affordable First Class Shipping. 24 and 32 inches (24" and 32" are in their own listing and ship by Priority Mail because of their length), You'll want your shuttles to be as long as your weaving width is, or a tad longer so you can push them into your shed, with their opposite end sticking out the other side, to pull through. Choose which items best fit your needs from drop down box at upper right and they'll ship right out. Feel free to take advantage of the cheaper shipping on additional tools which don't add significant weight or size to the package.
PICK UP STICKS: (Sold individually) - The stick is used behind your heddle. One way to look at it is that with a pick-up stick you trick your loom into thinking it is something it is not; you temporarily change the way the warp interacts with the slots and holes on the heddle. The result is a stunning range of patterns. With the heddle in the down shed position, pick up the slot threads behind the heddle using the beveled end of the pick-up stick. One pattern, for example, requires every other one of these slot threads to be picked up – over, under, over, under… Once the stick is completely inserted, bring it forward to the heddle and put it on edge. You can see how this imparts a different, temporary shed opening. You'll want your pick up sticks to be as long as your weaving width is, or a tad longer so you can push them into your shed, with their opposite end sticking out the other side, enabling you to hold both ends without reaching into your shed.
Do you have an older Kromski Harp you want to upgrade to the new standard – the Kromski Harp Forte. This upgrade kit includes all the new metal parts, magnet and well detailed instructions. This kit will also work on the older Fiddle looms. All you need is a phillips head screw driver.
WARP STICKS: (Sold in a pack of 6 or 12) - A simple weaving tool, but one that is sure to give your weaving the key to a perfectly tensioned warp. It is easy to use, as you wind your warp on the rear beam use these (3/16" X 1/2") thin wooden warp sticks to create a strong foundation that will support your warp from side to side and from one end to the other. Throw away your heavy paper or cardboard for the right tool. A dozen sticks will handle 2-3 yard warps, and consider two dozen for longer warps. You can never use too many, and you surely do not want to skimp. They have a width and thickness just right for the Harp.
WARP HELPER: A nice feature to the Kromski Harp Forte is the Warp Helper. Essentially this serves as a very useful 3rd hand. Place the Warp Helper over the side of the loom, behind the heddle. You don’t need to push it down all the way. It just needs to rest snugly on the side. Slide the Beam Dowel into the hole on the Helper and begin your warp.
