The compact 50 cm wide loom will come standard with 2 shafts and handles to control these. Extra heddles are sold individually. The Erica comes with 200 heddles, which is a good number for a narrow loom. Harnesses do not include heddles. Louet feels that not everyone will need extra heddles when adding harnesses, since 200 heddles are sufficient for most weavers needs for a 30 cm loom, even with 4 harnesses. In order to keep the price as low as possible, we offer heddles as optional items for those weavers who need them.
