Thread Collective is excited to offer Bluster Bay handcrafted shuttles made in a range of Australian timbers. The Conventional Boat Shuttles are available in 8", 10", 12" bullnose and 14" double with open and closed bottoms.
CONVENTIONAL BOAT SHUTTLE
These side-delivery boat shuttles use conventional bobbins that spin freely on bronze, spring-loaded spindles. The yarn feeds off the side of the bobbins (Thus the term “side-delivery” shuttle) and out a generous slot in the side of the shuttle. We recommend Schacht bobbins, but our shuttles will hold many other brands as well.
All Bluster Bay side-delivery shuttles for use with bobbins are available in either closed or open bottom styles.
