Like most looms, AVL Looms have two standard heddle types: metal or polyester (texolv).
Each pack includes 100 heddles.
- Metal heddles are the most durable and easiest to thread of all heddles. Our heddles are high quality, inserted-eye type. Construction involves twisting the wire, and then soldering in the eye. This type of metal heddle provides strength, and more importantly a smooth, gentle eye for the warp yarn. When compared to stamped metal heddles, inserted-eye are less abrasive and better for the warp yarn.
- Commonly referred to as Texolv heddles, these are durable, dye-able, and quiet. Polyester heddles are also the lightest option when used on a rising shed or jack type loom.
