Heddles

Heddles are steel wires, or thin flat steel strips held by the frame, with a loop or eye in the centre through which one or more warp yarns pass on the loom so that the thread movement is controllable in weaving. Heddles control the weave pattern and shed as the harnesses raised and lowered during the weaving. Each heddle controls one warp yarn, with a loom having as many as a thousand heddles.
