Weaver’s Boat Shuttles
Patterned after a classic design by Ed Bosworth, Jonathan’s father, our own Boat Shuttles are made in beautifully hand-finished woods. No matter which wood you choose, you will enjoy weaving with these smooth shuttles.
These Boat Shuttles are a perfect fit for our own Bosworth Charkha Spindles.
You can also use them with Harrisville or Leclerc standard 4″ bobbins
or your own paper bobbins.
Note: Our Shuttles cannot be used with the spindles from an Indian book charkha, and our Charkha Spindles do not fit the Bluster Bay shuttles meant for Indian book charkhas.
