These are "Swedish-Style" shuttles with elegant sweeping ends from Bluster Bay Woodworks.
Each shuttle is a handmade creation. Each is finished until it is silky-smooth. These treasured shuttles deserve a place by your loom and in your hand.
Choose from 10" Swedish-Style shuttles, use 3.5" quills. You can trim 4 1/2" quills with scissors. Or choose 12", 14" or 18" each using 4.5" or 5" quills. These shuttles are closed bottom only and are only 11/16" tall.
A variety of hardwoods are used to make these shuttles. With a craftsman's eye, they select the wood for each shuttle, then carefully cut each shuttle to expose to best color and grain. Sanding is a long and careful process ending with a finish of satin smoothness that is sealed with Danish oil. After drying several days, each shuttle is hand buffed with steel wool, waxed, then buffed again.
Shuttles do not come with cardboard quills. They are sold separately.
