Schacht boat shuttles are beautifully shaped and well balanced. They are sanded smooth and then given a hand-rubbed Danish oil finish. Four sizes are available: 9″, 11″, 13″, and 15″. If we are out of a size you need, please call so we can order it!
- The smallest boat shuttle, the 9″ mini, is styled after a Japanese silk shuttle. This duck-nosed shuttle is wonderful for narrow widths and fine yarns.
- The 11″ boat shuttle is the most popular as it is offered in slim (1.0") and regular (1.5") widths with an open-bottom style.
- The two largest boat shuttles are 13″ and 15″ long and can handle fine to medium-weight yarns. Because of their extra length and yarn capacity, weavers often choose these shuttles for wider weaving widths.
All boat shuttles are available in hard maple and some models are also available in cherry. If we are out of a size or the wood you need, please call so we can order it!
