Paivatar Yarn on Etsy
You may now purchase the Beaivi style of double hole rigid heddles and other band weaving supplies through my PaivatarYarn Etsy shop.
The Beaivi heddles were designed for me by Stoorstalka, based on a museum photo that I found online.

Band Weaving Yarns
I have had a bit of a difficult time trying to source yarns that are suitable for Sami style band weaving. So I decided to dye some of my own. The yarn is sourced locally in the UK and is spun from British Blue Faced Leicester wool which has a long staple and a natural sheen to the yarn.
Traditionally, the background weave on Sami style belts and bands was a natural cotton or wool yarn.
