Hi weavolution friends, You all are amazing - there is so much information and so much I have to learn! As I've written before, my loom is countermarch loom is quite old and the Gowdy reeds that came with it, a 6 dent and a 15 dent, are sturdy, but considerably rusty. I am attempting to fix them, but will likely need new reeds. Based on your experience (I am a total novice), can anyone suggest which one or two reeds a beginner should invest in (how many dents)? Thanks a bunch!
