The Cricket is made of high-quality apple ply and hard maple and is left unfinished. Each Cricket comes with an 8-dent reed. We also have 5-, 10- and 12-dent reeds that can be purchased separately.  Included are a threading hook, warping peg, table clamps, two shuttles, and two balls of yarn.

For those of us with a big stash of knitting yarn, this is a great way to put that stash to a beautiful use!  Rigid heddle weaving is a simple way to try your hand at weaving.   We have classes available, but it's also not hard for the self-starter to learn by themselves.
