Bluster Bay End-Feed Shuttles
For perfect selvedges and speedy weaving, many weavers prefer to use end-feed boat shuttles. These boat shuttles use special end-feed bobbins (called pirns) that do not spin. Rather, the yarn is released off the end of the stationary pirn, through a tensioning device and then out the side of the shuttle.
