Hello,

I am wondering if it possible to find a loom where to fit a reed (or any lifting device) allowing to use chunky/novelty handspun yarns without destroying them.

I have a knitters loom with the wide eyed reed but it is fare too small for my strange yarns  Undecided

Thank you for your help  Smiley

You can use a pick up stick and a bar with string hedlles.

Thank you very much. I had thought of that (I have a frame loom) and as it seems that more handy looms where not created for thick yarns, it will be my only one solution.

I will post the result here Wink

can't wait to see ^^ You could also use your knitter's loom as a base and the stick and string heddle instead of the provided one.

This is a very good idea. I will try that and take pictures of the process. I will add it to my humble weaving online courses. (I will write English version for a change  Wink )

I second the string loop heddles, I have a really old loom that has string loops and it's so easy and so flexible. I love it.
