Bluster Bay End-Feed Boat Shuttle - Honex
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 and complete instructions for winding pirns, threading the shuttle and adjusting the tensioner. There is a variety of woods to choose from, if you want a specific wood please call the shop.
