The Fiddle, at 16", will do everything the 16" Harp will do in terms of weaving; you will not be giving up anything in that regard. Weave to your heart's content. The main differences between the Harp and the Fiddle are that the Harp can fold and comes finished with warping board pegs whereas the Fiddle does not fold, comes unfinished and does not include any warping board pegs. Also, the Fiddle is only available in a 16" weaving width; the Harp comes in 3 widths: 16", 24" and 32".
The Fiddle is packaged with a 10-dent heddle, 2 stick shuttles, clamps, a modified Warp Helper, warping peg and a threading hook. You can also add the following options to your Fiddle: additional shuttles, pick-up sticks, heddle blocks (to allow the use of 2 heddles) and The Harp stand (above). The Fiddle also comes ready for use as a warping board (pre-drilled holes on the back of the frame) - you can purchase the pegs for this purpose or make your own.
The Fiddle comes unfinished and partially assembled. You may finish the wood but it is not necessary, but suggested. Assembly is easy (instructions included) and takes about 30 minutes.
