Bobbins for Boat Shuttles
This shuttle is especially designed for Sakiori weaving. You can easily place 2 kinds of Sakiori strips onto this shuttle. You can adjust the position of the two pins inside the shuttle in accordance with the weaving width. By making the distance between the two pins equal to the weaving width, you can have the Sakiori strip come out from the shuttle as you need it, so you can weave very easily and smoothly. This shuttle is available with two different sizes. Use the SAORI Fabric Cutter to cut Sakiori strips to weave with this shuttle.
