Kromski reeds are the heddles used for the Harp rigid heddle looms. The looms come with an 8 dent reed as standard.
Kromski reeds are available in 5, 8, 10, and 12 dent, and in lengths of 8″, 16″, 24″, and 32″.
5 dent is suitable heavy-worsted and for some bulky yarns. 8 dent works well for worsted and DK. 10 dent is for ideal for sport yarns and 3/2 pearl cottons, and 12 dent for fine yarns and 5/2 pearl cottons. These are suggestions, though. Yarns vary greatly from manufacturer to manufacturer. Sampling is always recommended.

By adding a second heddle kit to your Kromski Harp Forte Loom, you can use two heddles at one time and achieve finer setts – for example, use two 12-dent reeds for a 24 ends per inch (epi) cloth. Or, use two heddles to make double-weave fabric (two layers at the same time). You can then weave fabric twice the width of your loom!
