Toika stainless steel reeds are made in the traditional way using the best possible raw materials. Specially treated yarn is used as a binder to keep the dents in place. The total height of the reed is 12.7 cm (5″), the total width of Toika reeds is 3cm (1.18″) longer than the weaving width.
Toika reeds will fit many other brands of loom and offer excellent value for money. Most looms have beater lids that are adjustable to accommodate extra height and open ends that will accommodate any extra length. If your loom doesn’t have these features please ring for advice. We haven’t found a loom yet that a Toika reed won’t fit! We try and keep the reed lengths and dent sizes that are requested frequently by our customers in stock, ready for despatch.
