Not What I Was Expecting 3 out of 5 stars (3 out of 5)
I recently bought a 10 Cricket Loom and wanted to have all the different sizes of heddles to weave with a variety of fibers. My loom came with one 8-dent heddle, so I considered buying 5-, 10-, and 12-dent heddles and realized it would cost $96 for the three additional heddles. I thought the variable dent heddle would be an economical solution since it included sections of all sizes for $60. What I was not understanding is that the variable dent heddle is made for using two or more gauges of warp yarn or fiber at the same time and only two sections of each size were provided. Each section is only 2 1/4 wide and up to four sections will fit in the frame. Therefore, if I wanted to weave something with a fine gauge warp yarn, it could only be 4 1/2 wide since the kit only had two 12-dent sections. I ended up purchasing additional sections of each gauge from another vendor they were not available here at a cost of $69. Still, using four sections at each gauge, I will be limited to a 9 weaving width, rather than the 10 width of the standard heddles. I realize this was my misunderstanding and I just want to warn prospective buyers that the item may not give you the flexibility you were looking for. I ended up paying $120 total instead of $96.
