The Harp Forté is like the original Kromski Harp loom but with metal ratchets on both the warp and cloth beams. This means that the warp is held securely even under high tension like that used with tapestry weaving. The loom is portable but versatile, available in 8, 16, 24, and 32" weaving widths. Just loosen the tension and the loom folds in half for travel or storage, even when fully warped. It is made of European alder wood and comes with:
- an 8-dent heddle
- 2 stick shuttles
- a pick-up stick
- threading hook
- 2 table clamps
- warping peg
- warping board pegs to convert the underside of the loom into a five-yard warping board
- Warp Helper tool to speed the warping process
Options include a carrying bag, tilting floor stand, 10 and 12 dent heddles, and heddle block set for a second heddle.
The Harp comes ready to assemble. Please note that the photo above is of the 16" loom. The heddle crosspiece on the 32" version is straight rather than curved.
