Schacht Boat Shuttles

$20.10

Schacht's 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. Schacht's most popular boat shuttle, the 11" boat shuttle, is offered in slim (1" high) and regular (1 1/4" high, 1/4" wider than slim) models with closed-bottom and open-bottom styles. 
 
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. 
 
Schacht also offer slim and regular double-bobbin boat shuttles which 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 and some models are also available in cherry.  Bobbins are available in white plastic - please be sure to buy the correct size. 4" fit the 9" and 11" shuttles, 5" fit the 13" shuttle and 6" the 15" shuttles. 

The Schacht End-Delivery Shuttles are the ultimate in shuttles designed especially and precisely for hand weavers. They are lightweight, comfortable to throw and catch, adjustable to a variety of yarns, and easy (really easy) to thread. End-delivery shuttles are available in 12" and 15" sizes. Pirns are available for these shuttles in wood and plastic. Please be sure to select 6" pirns for the 12" shuttles and 8" for the 15" size.
