Heddles

You can order longer heddles for the extended shed here. Alternatively, you can make your own heddles. This is how: 

Cut twenty-four-inch lengths of your heddle material (cotton crochet thread, linen warp or single-ply cotton warp all work well), one for each heddle you will make. Loop a length of your heddle material around a piece of cardboard 5 3/4” long. Secure the ends by making a loop with both ends and pulling the ends through that loop.

In order to get the knot to sit right next to the of edge of the cardboard, slip a needle into the knot before it is pulled tight and push the knot toward the edge of the cardboard to tighten it. Trim off the ends of the heddles to within a quarter of an inch of the knot. 

This video shows you how to make heddles. Make sure to make yours the size described above.
