Schacht Boat Shuttles
Schacht boat shuttles are beautifully shaped and well balanced. They are sanded smooth and then given a hand-rubbed Danish oil finish.
There are several sizes available:
- 9″ mini shuttle, styled after a Japanese silk shuttle. This duck-nosed shuttle is wonderful for narrow widths and fine yarns.
- 11″ shuttle -- the most popular size. Offered in slim and regular models with either closed-bottom or open-bottom styles.
- 13″ and 15″ shuttles can handle fine to medium weight yarns. Because of their extra length and yarn capacity, weavers often choose these shuttles for wider weaving widths.
- Double-bobbin boat shuttles are ideal for doubled weft threads. Two separate bobbin shafts make it possible to remove one bobbin at a time. Available in slim and regular models.
