Measuring up for a New Reed

When ordering a reed, check the overall length of the reed you are replacing, including the end caps which add about 2.5cm to the total length. 

The reed height is normally defined by the size of the opening in the beater.  Most looms are flexible in the height of the reed they can accept, which is defined by the shed created between the beater and the upper warps. 

If you're not sure how to measure for your reed, please give us a ring on 01483 565800 as these cut to order items cannot be returned.

40 years after decimalisation our weaving reeds have finally gone metric! We've tried to make the transition as simple as possible, and include a dpi equivalent in the product description, find our more about our stainless steel weaving reeds >

GREAT NEWS We have a quantity of mild steel reeds in 4" and 5" heights, which include 6-14 dpi and have been cut to various lengths.  We're offering the remainder of this stock at a 50% discount, please contact us to discuss availability.
