Wooden weaving shuttle designed for use with the rigid heddle loom. Lightweight. Thin. Wedge-shaped. In 12 and 24-inch lengths. I call it the RH Pass Shuttle.

This listing is for the 12-inch shuttle. Holds standard 6" bobbin.

The wooden shuttle is handmade in my home out of oak with a 1/8" brass rod to hold the bobbin. A little plastic lock turns to release or hold the free end of the rod in place. Shuttle measures 1.75" x 2.5" x 11.5".

It is my own design in response to some chatter on the Ravelry Rigid Heddle forums a while back and my own frustration at pushing a thick heavy boat shuttle through the rigid heddle’s narrow shed with the bobbin dragging along against the warp threads.

The shuttle is lightweight because it is meant to be passed rather than thrown and is wedge- rather than block- shaped with the yarn coming out of the hole on the heddle side rather than up against the warp. The tapered ends slide easily into the warp as the taller side holds the warp open to allow the bobbin to pass through with minimum abrasion.

A 24-inch shuttle is available.
