With heddles, you can weave intricate patterns and designs on a larger scale. Additionally, heddle looms often have multiple shafts for more complex weaving techniques. Whether you prefer small-scale projects or expansive creations, both looms have their unique advantages. So, if you're drawn to creating beautiful bands and desire a compact and user-friendly option, an inkle loom is your ideal choice.
