Kromski Harp Forte Rigid Heddle Loom


The Kromski Harp Forte is in my opinion simply the best rigid heddle loom on the market. It’s made from solid European alder wood and is hand-crafted by the Kromski family factory in Poland. The Harp Forte is widely recognised as the rigid heddle loom of choice, due to its solid frame, and metal ratchets and pawls rather than plastic. The elegant turnings and details coordinate with many of the Kromski spinning wheel range, as well as the spinning stool and lazy Kate. There is also a wide range of accessories to allow you to extend the capabilities of this loom as you explore and grow in your rigid heddle weaving. The Harp Forte is an ideal loom for every stage of rigid heddle weaving – from absolute beginners to people who are masters of the craft.

Kromski Harp Forte rigid heddle loom features:

This loom comes in four different weaving widths, from 8″, which is perfect for travel, sampling, or practice, up to 32″ which can be used to make blankets. Harp Forte looms come with built in warping boards, or you can use a direct warping method. They are portable and fold in half even while warped. I bring my 8″ rigid heddle loom camping with me and on road trips. The 8″ Harp Forte is small enough to fold up and put in a canvas carry bag – I use one of our shop bags – while the 16″, 24″, and 32″ have an optional bag for carrying it with you.
