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 offered in slim and regular models with closed-bottom and open-bottom styles. Schacht's 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's slim and regular double-bobbin boat shuttles are ideal for doubled weft threads. Two separate bobbin shafts make it possible to remove one bobbin at a time.
