More Shuttles

Shuttles are the efficiency of weaving, the carriers of weft, and the one tool that weavers handle more than any other. These tools have to be just right for the job, just right for the loom and, most importantly, just right to the weaver!

There are more styles of shuttles than anyone can count! Above are pictured my Rag Shuttle which can aide in weaving rag rugs and place mats. These shuttles come in various exotic woods, has a height of 1 1/2″ to 2″ and comes in several different lengths.

And now, above is my Rug Shuttle because it’s so popular for handling a lot of larger yarns like might be used in rugs. Some weavers also use them for not to large yarn, a 6/2 or 8/2 worsted wool, for example, or 5/2 cotton, or a novelty silk.

These shuttles come in a variety of exotic woods and are low profile with a 1″ to 1 1/2″ height in various lengths.
