Review: *****"I have 2 Ashford looms but didn't have any Ashford boat shuttles! I do like my other shuttles but they never seemed to be quite the right fit. This one is the PERFECT size. I'm definitely coming back for the other size and more bobbins. Super fast shipping too! Thank you so much!"***** Bren S.
Ashford Boat Shuttles are beautifully crafted and well balanced, made from solid Silver Beech hardwood and now available in two sizes. Lacquered finish. Includes one free nylon boat shuttle bobbin. The 14 inch shuttle is great for larger weaving widths and the 11.5 inch for smaller projects. Each boat shuttle comes with a free nylon bobbin in it.
Belt Shuttles are pictured second and measure approximately 7" in length.
Boat Shuttles: 11.5" (29cm) Shuttle 14" (35cm) Shuttle - Extra length for wider weaving widths.
Choose from drop down box at upper left.
Nylon Bobbins (shown in last photo) available in my shop, either singularly (convo me for singles) or in packs of 5 ($9.50) or 10 ($16.50). Shown in last photo. Boat Shuttle Winder (Wooden) also available with one free bobbin ($113.00).
The Ashford bobbin is 4-3/8" overall length and the hole is just over 1/8" diameter. For a bobbin winder to fit, we suggest the small shaft steel & brass Swedish Bobbin Winder, the new Ashford wooden single ended bobbin winder. . . or a double ended bobbin winder.
Paper Quills: Cardboard bobbins fit Ashford Boat shuttles and others of same size and are approximately 4" long. These are also used in the low profile Swedish boat shuttles such as Glimakra's shuttles also listed in my shop.
I ship every day but Sunday. Your order will go out immediately.
