    How is the Sampleit Loom different to the Rigid Heddle Loom?

    The Rigid Heddle Loom is heavier and therefore more timber component, also more versatile as you can add the freedom roller and table stand.

    The Sampleit Loom is lighter and has Second Heddle kit built in, you cannot add freedom roller or table stand etc to the Sampleit looms.

    QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

    Ask a Question
    • I have the smaller sampleit. Do the knobs come off at all? I have severe arthritis and need something easier to turn but can't find a way to take them off.

      Yes the knobs can be removed. You can lever the knob off with a flat head screw driver, working your way around the knob and just keep easing it up until it disengages.

    • Does the 40cm Sampleit Loom also have the built-in second heddle kit?

      Hello and thank you for your question.
      Yes, both the 25cm and the 40cm Sampleit Loom does have the built-in second heddle kit.
      Many thanks
