Heddles


Texsolv HeddlesSteel Heddles

The following selection of heddles are available from Camilla Valley Farm Weavers' Supply. While these heddles are designed to fit Leclerc looms, they may fit other vendor's products.

To verify size, measure the distance between the top edge of the top heddle support bar and the bottom edge of the bottom heddle support bar on your loom's shaft frame. If this distance is 9 1/2", 10 1/2" or 12 1/2" and as long as the heddle support bars are no greater than 1/2" (13 mm) wide and 1/8" (3 mm) thick, these heddles should fit. your loom.

Wire Heddles

The Regular wire heddles are those that are shipped standard on most new Leclerc looms. The eye of the Regular version is 7/16" (11 mm) high and 5/32" (4 mm) at the widest point.

Regular Eye

The Long Eye heddle have eyes that are 2" (5 cm) high and 3/8" (9.5 mm) wide and are used primarily for pick up weaving to allow the warp thread to be lifted without breaking. The loops at each end of the heddle will accept a heddle support bar up to 1/2" (13 mm) wide and 1/8" (3 mm) thick. The Regular wire heddles come in lengths of 9 1/2", 10 1/2" and 12 1/2" and can be purchased in bundles of 100 or 500. The Long Eye wire heddles come only in 10 1/2" and 12 1/2" and can be purchased in bundles of 100.

Inserted Eye Heddles

Inserted eye heddles are similar to regular wire heddles except that the eye has been dipped in solder to form a

more circular opening that prevents heddles Inserted Eye

from catching on each other and allows the warp thread to slide more easily through the eye. The Regular size has an opening 1/4" (6 mm) high and 1/8" (3 mm) wide while the Large Eye inserted eye heddle has an opening 3/8" (9.5 mm) high and 1/4" (6 mm) wide. The Regular inserted eye heddles come in lengths of 9 1/2", 10 1/2" and 12 1/2" and can be purchased in bundles of 100 or 500 while the Large Eye inserted eye heddles come only in 10 1/2" and 12 1/2" and can be purchased in bundles of 100.

Repair Heddles

It is always useful to have a number of Repair Heddles available when threading the warp and during the weaving process itself. These are similar to normal heddles but have a special loop that opens at the ends to allow them to be added to the heddle support bar anywhere without removing all the other heddles first.

Repair Heddles

Repair heddles can be used to replace broken heddles or to add heddles where warp threads were not threaded through the correct frame or were simply missed during the warping process. Repair heddles can be ordered in a Wire version that looks similar to a Regular wire heddle or in a Flat version. The Wire repair heddles are simply Regular wire heddles with ends that have not been soldered, are less expensive if many repair heddles are required, come in 9 1/2", 10 1/2" and 12 1/2" sizes and are sold in bundles of 12. The Flat repair heddles are a little stronger, are easier to add and remove and are easier to spot once weaving is completed and they are to be removed.

Texsolv Heddles

Texsolv heddles are made from a unique system of crocheted (without knots), heat treated polyester that is extremely durable, does not stretch and is very strong. Texsolv heddles come in joined bundles of 100 that can be easily threaded on the heddle support bar. The open construction of the heddles makes threading easy and almost eliminates friction with the warp. Depending upon the weaver's preference, the heddles can be cut apart or left joined.
