The Kromski Harp Forte rigid heddle loom has several innovative features. The Kromski Harp Forte has a warping board integral to its design; turn over the loom and you can make your warp (five yards plus). When you get ready to travel, take your Harp Forte with you; it folds to be more compact (with the warp attached) and fits neatly into the Kromski tote bag (optional). The overall look of the Harp Forte is also striking; European alder wood with a clear finish, lots of curves and turned pieces. Your Harp Forte comes with a 8-dent heddle, 2 stick shuttles, a pick-up stick, threading hook, 2 clamps, a warping peg, warping board pegs, the very helpful “warp helper”, and a video on assembling the loom and basic weaving. The Kromski Tote, extra heddles, extra heddle blocks (for more complex weaving) and stands are available separately. Loom sizes: 16″, 24″ and 32″. You will weave great music on the Kromski Harp Forte!
The Kromski loom does double duty as a warping board. Create a small warp or a large one, but you don’t need to purchase extra equipment to do it. Folded, the Kromski Harp Forte will store easily or allow you to transport it to workshops, to the cabin in the woods, or to the beach.
For weaving instructors and stores giving classes, The Harp Forte is the perfect loom to get students weaving. Each loom has everything a beginner needs for a class. And when the class is adjourned for a week, or when it is over, let them take it home as a “keeper.”
Considerable effort has been put into creating clear assembly instructions. It is really quick and easy to put the looms together. In addition, we have created lengthy instructions that will help a beginner setup and complete their first project. So right out of the box and to a finished piece, The Harp is just right for beginners or experienced weavers.
