Add some variables to your rigid heddle weaving! The Variable Dent Reed is a rigid heddle reed with interchangeable 5, 8, 10, and 12 dent sections of reed. Each section is 2-3/8″ in width, and you can mix and match these sections to create your own custom reed. The number of sections you receive varies with the length of the reed—see the table below. The overall weaving width will be slightly narrower than a traditional reed.
