I am a relatively new weaver and I have a really dumb question. How do I measure the dpi on the rigid heddles? I think I have one each of 12 dpi and 10 dpi, but I can't tell the difference.

 

Thanks for any help........

You should be able to measure

You should be able to measure out one inch then count the spaces and holes within that inch.  The 10 will have 10 spaces/holes, the 12 will have 12 spaces/holes.

Cheers,

Laura
