For perfect selvedges and speedy weaving, many weavers prefer 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.
The Honex tensioner really excels with smooth, evenly spun yarns in a wide range of sizes from very fine silk to 3/2 perle cotton.
Available in 11 and 15 inch lengths.
The shuttle is 1.625" wide and 1.25" tall. Each shuttle comes with an Allen wrench.
There is a variety of woods to choose from, if you want a specific wood please call the shop.
