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″.
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. Our most popular boat shuttle, the 11″ boat shuttle, is offered in slim and regular models with closed-bottom and open-bottom styles. Our 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. We also offer slim and regular double-bobbin boat shuttles that are ideal for doubled weft threads. Two separate bobbin shafts make it possible to remove one bobbin at a time. All boat shuttles are available in hard maple.
