Wire Heddles - All Types & Sizes - Leclerc
Please select all options.
Wire heddles offer many benefits. They are easy to thread, glide smoothly along shaft frames, and are generally easier to remove and add to shafts.
Standard wire heddles are supplied as the default with most looms.
Inserted eye heddles will prevent snags if working with bulkier yarn or whispy yarn (such as mohair). The smooth inner circle allows for smooth gliding of the warp yarn through the eye of the heddle. Leclerc offers a standard and large inserted eye size.
Repair heddles are nice to have on hand in case of a threading error or miscalculating how many heddles you have a on a shaft (in case you are a few short!). The standard wire repair heddle must be uncoiled to be placed on the shaft. The flat repair heddle simply opens to be placed on the shaft.
