Shuttle for Looms

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

The term shuttle loom refers to any loom that uses a shuttle. Most looms use a shuttle of some sort, however there are some shuttle-less looms. A shuttle is a tool designed to neatly and compactly store weft yarn while weaving. Shuttles are thrown or passed back and forth through the shed, between the yarn threats of the warp in order to weave in the weft.
