Stainless Steel Reed - Imperial
Fine quality stainless steel reeds manufactured in Finland by Toika who first started making metal reeds 120 years ago. We keep a range of standard sizes in stock in imperial dent measurements, ready for despatch. If your preferred size is out of stock please get touch for an idea of lead times.
Toika reeds will fit many other makes of loom. Most beaters have an adjustable lid that will allow a slightly taller or shorter reed to be secured and used successfully. Please get in touch if you would like to check before ordering whether a Toika reed will fit your loom.
The reeds are all a standard height of 5 inches (125mm) and are always 0.98 inches (25mm) longer than the weaving width supplied. Although a reed that matches the weaving width of your loom is the obvious size to purchase it is also possible to use a shorter reed than the weaving width of your loom. Consider a less expensive purchase if you only ever plan to do narrower width cloth perhaps in very fine yarns.
For imperial reeds the reeds are made to imperial measurements i.e. dents per inch. For example a 12 dpi reed will space 12 threads per inch if one end is threaded through each dent. If you prefer to work with metric units please see the range of reeds made to metric measurements.

The smaller 30cm and 40cm reeds may be sent using the Royal Mail Medium Parcel 2nd class service which usually takes 2-3 days but is not guaranteed.
