When ordering a reed, check the overall length of the reed you are replacing, including the end caps which add about 2cm to the total length. The reed height is normally defined by the size of the opening in the beater. Most looms are flexible in the height of the reed they can accept, which is defined by the shed created between the beater and the upper warps. If you’re not sure how to measure for your reed, please give us a ring on 01483 565800 as these cut to order items cannot be returned.
The autodenter is helpful for threading the warp onto the weaving loom ‘back-to-front’. You can work left-to-right or right-to-left across the reed, whichever your handedness prefers. Find out more about Sleying the Reed with an autodenter.
