Sharp Edge (Cumbria) is the UK agent for Stoorstalka (Sweden) weaving products.
The double slotted Sunna heddles were suggested by Susan Foulkes from Durham (an experienced braid weaver) who has visited Sweden to see for herself the braids woven there.
The Sunna heddles make weaving braids and bands so much easier. The Sunna heddles make weaving braids and bands so much easier.
The short slots are for the pattern threads and whether you raise or lower the heddle, the pattern threads will always be in the centre of the shed making it easy to pick up the threads you need for that throw of the shuttle.
The curved Gehpa shuttle makes picking up the appropriate pattern threads even easier.
Sunna heddles are available with 5, 7, 9, 13 and 17 pattern slots - smaller sizes are great for weaving without a loom (backstrap weaving) or with an Inkle loom.
The larger sizes are best used on a rigid heddle loom - this may need modifying to give a longer reach between the heddle and the front beam.
Stoostalka also make a range of standard heddles and other special heddles, some of which are in stock and others obtained to order.
