Flying Dutchman Shuttle - Louet
The flying dutchman has a metal wire bowed across the top of the shuttle to spread apart sticky warp threads. The plastic guide in the front allows for optimal unwinding of your bobbin without snagging on the metal ord. Shuttles are lacquered 34x6.8x4.8cm (13.5"x2.75"x2"), weight: 160 gr. (5.7 oz) made of lacquered beech.
Included with each purchase is a 3-d printed Quill. Our quills are slightly longer than the Louet Paper Quills and have a threaded end for an easy start to winding.
Personal note from Dawne - this has become my favorite shuttle, especially for weaving with linen. You do need to have a bobbin winder that will accept the narrow diameter of the paper quills or a double-ended electric winder.
Paperquills work in this shuttle (see related product) as well as the LoftyFiber 3-d printed Quills.
