Beautiful card/inkle weaving beaters, hand crafted from beautiful Cocobolo with a firm sharp edge perfect for working on weaving bands. The beaters are heavy enough to pack down your weft, but light enough to allow for hours of weaving. The finish is a light linseed oil to allow the beauty of the wood to shine through, and all the beaters have been hand sanded with a 1500 grit sandpaper to a silky, smooth touch.
"Cocobolo is a rich and lustrous exotic wood that lends itself to a myriad of uses due to its durability, workability and attractive grain patterns. While the white, creamy sapwood is rarely used, the heartwood varies from yellow to deep reds and purples with dark purple veining that creates a dark rich feel to the wood." (source, http://www.exoticwood.com/cocobolo.html) These beaters are made with a hand selected heavily figured piece; each beater has amazing character and glorious color!
This style is what I call the small enterprise style of beater, with a handle for the grip allowing greater reach into the warp. Total overall length is 6.75 inches, blade length is 3.5 inches, weft holder length is 1.5 inches, and blade top is 2.75 inches. Overall width is 2 inches. These are extremely comfortable beaters to use and very handy.
