How to use your mini rigid heddle

Our carved buffalo horn mini rigid heddle is one of this year's additions to our selection of craft tools. Unlike crochet hooks, knitting spools and lucets, the heddle is not so easy to demonstrate for our customers at festivals, nor is it easy to explain in words for online customers. We believe we have the solution.
We have uploaded a three minute video to youtube which gives you the basic information needed to get you started. Click on the following link to be taken to the video tutorial:

The video can also be found on the Sorazora product page for our rigid heddle. We plan on making a couple more basic 'how to' videos for our knitting spool and lucet.

The images above and below are just to give you a basic idea of how the heddle should look after the warp threads have been set up and also a closer look at the plain weave created. These two images show the heddle being used with natural dyed cotton twine, also available from our materials collection.
