The High Desert Weaving shuttles have been designed to meet the needs of weavers who can benefit from a high capacity boat shuttle. They are intended to be used with quills rather than bobbins. The quill rods are held in place by rare earth magnets which provide a firm hold, yet allow quills to be quickly and easily changed. Shuttles are individually handmade of birch and walnut, and are finished with a durable polyurethane finish. Each shuttle comes with six quills to get you started, and a template that can be used for making additional quills.
