The curling eye heddle of the present invention utilizes a curling eye which permits the warp thread used in weaving to be threaded onto or unthreaded off of the heddle at the level of the sheet of warps. The curling eye heddle also permits individual warp threads to be lifted or depressed above or below the sheet of warps, respectively. A diamond adjacent to the curling eye prevents the curling eye from catching or snagging neighboring warp threads.
