      Comments about Toika Temples:

      These should be listed as must haves for novice weavers! I could have saved many beginning projects from draw in if I'd had one. They may cost as much as some small looms but the problem of draw in can make a novice weaver give up weaving, when the simple fix is a temple. I have several beginner magazines and books and nothing about temples is mentioned. WEBS! I had to dig in your site to find them. Advertise these for beginners! I think it's great you offer them. Thank you!

        Comments about Toika Temples:

        Needed a wider temple since the one I had was too narrow for the rug I was weaving. I've been very pleased with the Toika product, I got another the widest size. As is the case with all temples, care is needed to avoid injury to fingers, loom parts, or fabric.

        I used wooden temples for years and find the metal ones much easier tousein doubleweave pieces.

          Comments about Toika Temples:

          I bought this temple when I started weaving rugs. It is far better than the wooden ones I already owned. Adjustments to size are very close together, so you can get just what you need.

                Comments about Toika Temples:

                This is great for weaving wool rugs, thicker and wider projects. The teeth don't break or bend, more position options.

                  Comments about Toika Temples:

                  I love my Toika metal temple! It's sharp, sturdy, totally function and it has a narrow footprint so I can see what I am weaving. How I wove without it I have yet to figure out! It's now the first thing I pull out when I start weaving.

                      Easier to see the weaving pattern develop behind the temple than the pretty wooden ones, teeth do not seem to come loose like the wooden temples
