After decades of making spinning wheels, the Kromski family decided to “try their hand” at Rigid Heddle Looms. Now, weaver’s around the globe are so glad they did!! What the Kromski family has achieved in the Harp Forte is not only innovative in design, but is also superior in functionality and is aesthetically evident of the Kromski beauty our products are reputable for.
Weavers across the globe are in love with the Kromski products. Now they have added a new member to the loom collection! Meet The Presto Loom!
This new rigid heddle loom features a sleek modern look, paired with the same quality craftsmanship you’ve come to expect from Kromski. The Presto is available in warping widths of 10 and 16 inches and comes in unfinished Alder wood with an 8 dent heddle. This striking design offers a raised metal beam for a beautiful weaving area. Each of the metal braces on the underside of the loom are adorned with small rubber ‘stoppers’ that not only protect the top of your work surface, but also help to prevent the loom from slipping as you weave. The Presto also includes a new Warp Helper Loop which provides perfect stability between the heddle and the dowel rod while warping the loom. This simple addition acts as an extra set of hands, making the warping process a breeze. The Presto features the same metal ratchet and pawl with corresponding rare earth magnets which provide incredibly secure tension locking abilities.
Like to take your loom with you when you go? You’ll love the way this breaks down for travel. Simply remove the beams and the braces, rotate the heddle blocks and “presto!”, you have a flat loom that is easy to transport. Each loom package includes the loom and everything you need to begin weaving right away.
And as an extra treat, each loom comes with a skein of hand dyed, DK weight yarn and instructions to complete a first scarf project. Each skein is dyed especially for the Presto Scarf in our North America office. Kromski has chosen a lovely soft superwash merino yarn, dyed in a plethora of colors. The colors change regularly. Let us surprise you with our choice! This is a scarf that you will be delighted to wear, and when your friends ask where you got it, you can say with pride “I made it on my Kromski Presto Loom!”
