Weaving

A Shuttle is a tool designed to neatly and compactly store or a holder that carries the thread across the loom weft yarn while weaving. Shuttles are thrown or passed back and forth through the shed, between the yarn threads of the warp in order to weave in the weft.

The simplest shuttles, known as “stick shuttles”, are made from a flat, narrow piece of wood with notches on the ends to hold the weft yarn.
