18″ Bluster Bay Slim Rag Shuttle

2 Comments

I think I just found my new favorite shuttle for weaving on a rigid heddle loom. Stick shuttles can hook on warp threads, and from what I’ve heard, boat shuttles can fall between warp threads.

So far, I love using my new shuttles on the Glimakra Emilia. The slim design fits nicely in the shed, and I can pack more weft on than I imagined. In fact, I had the same amount as the stick shuttle I’d been using.

These little discoveries really make my day. I’m so happy I bought two!

So, if I do run low on beige, I'll have plenty of blue or white to finish. But why worry? This blanket I'm planning (the one where I weave nearly a dozen panels on my Ashford Sampleit and then sew them all together) may take a long, long time to finish. I decided a little pattern never hurt anyone, and so there will be a few panels with some Brooks Bouquet in them to fancy it up.
