Texsolv heddles offer all of these advantages over string. The larger number indicates the length (see Texsolv website for how to measure) 12 indicates the size of the heddle eye in mm.
- Rapid set up
- Extremely durable
- Knotless system
- Always same length
- Easy to replace
- Eliminates friction on warp
- Open construction facilitates threading
The heddles are easily set up and organized on the loom shafts. They are bundled in a continuing row so they will not be tangled up. The heddles are joined but can easily be separated if necessary, e.g. if a heddle needs to be removed or replaced.
If you are new to using Texsolv heddles always keep the ties on the heddles until they are safely on your shafts. Likewise if you are removing heddles to make space for a wide or dense warp or to add some to a shaft where they are needed; either reuse the ties or use clips or string to secure all of the heddles top and bottom and on both sides. It feels like a faff but it is far quicker than having to rethread a bundle of heddle spaghetti if the worst happens and the bundle slips to the floor.
Sold in bundles of 100 heddles.
