The Schacht End-Delivery Shuttle

Types of weaving shuttleThe Schacht End-Delivery Shuttle is designed especially and precisely for handweavers. It is lightweight, comfortable to throw and catch, adjustable to a variety of yarns, and easy to thread.

The shuttle has a pirn which remains stationary, instead of a free-spinning bobbin. The weft yarn unwinds off the pirn’s tip when the shuttle is in motion and stops unwinding when the shuttle stops. The yarn comes off the pirn and goes through a set of tension pads and comes out of the shuttle at a constant tension.

This even delivery of weft causes less draw-in, which in turn makes better selvedges. The weaver should resist the temptation to handle the weft yarn at all. Simply adjust the tension to suit the yarn and allow the shuttle to do the work.

Pirns

These high density plastic moulded pirns have the look and feel of turned wood. They are available in 2 sizes for the 31cm and 38cm Schacht End Feed Shuttles.
