shasta combs (pair)
These combs essentially turn a Mirrix Loom into a simple frame loom (read: very simple to use) but with the amazing Mirrix tensioning system and the ability to use the Mirrix shedding device. The combs are not meant to replace our current warping system, which offers the advantage of putting on a warp that is longer than the loom itself as well as a variety of warp setts, but to provide an additional warping method that is very fast and simple that also can allow one to weave a piece (of limited lengths) with no warp-ends to finish.
The Shasta Combs are made of aluminum and have three sides so that they clamp right on to the top and bottom beams of the loom making them easy to put on and take off without having to permanently change anything about the loom.
The combs provide a limited warp sett of 8 or 4 ends per inch. However, if you use them with a top and bottom warp coil you can get whatever sett the warp coils are.
-Easy and fast warping
-Creates one layer of warp instead of two
-Gives you the option of not having to finish your warp-ends
Who Might Want Combs?
-Tapestry/fiber weavers and bead weavers
-Beginning weavers who want the option of a simple method of warping
-Weavers who want to weave pieces without warp ends to finish (Note: The size of pieces made with this method are limited by the size of your loom and the height each loom can be adjusted to, as the top and bottom of weavings made with this method will be at the top and bottom of your loom.)
-Those looking for a fast, easy way to warp for samples or other quick pieces
How to Warp With Combs:
Warping consists of tying to a tooth on one comb and zig-zagging back and forth through the teeth. There are three slightly different methods of doing this depending on if you want warp ends or not or want to use springs in combination with the combs.
