Schacht's boat shuttles are beautifully shaped and well balanced. Made of hard maple, they are sanded smooth and then given a hand-rubbed Danish oil finish. Four sizes are available: 9", 11", 13", and 15".
Schacht's 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 an open-bottom style, as are Schacht's two largest boat shuttles which 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.
