Two sizes are available: 9″ and 11″. 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. The most popular boat shuttle, the 11″ slim boat shuttle is perfect for most types of weaving. Both shuttles fit the 4″ bobbins.
To create the gorgeous color, Schacht applies 3 coats of a water-based stain and then seals the wood with polyurethane and Danish oil for a colorfast finish.
