Quills are used in the same way that plastic or wood bobbins are in boat shuttles. The difference is that quills are usually made out of paper, but can also be made out of wood. In addition to using them to weave with, you can use paper quills to store leftover yarn to free up space on your plastic bobbins. Quills fit in most shuttles and can be cut down to size if needed.
