Great item, quickly shipped. Helps to maintain a cross when sleying the reed.
Treasures from time past.
As Handywoman I have been making and selling low cost Weaving tools for over 20 years. Handywoman weaving tools are made at times from recycled barn woods and when new wood is used it is always from sustainable and responsibly harvested wood.
I am the sole maker, designer and administrator of Handywoman shop. I work out of my garage and truly enjoy making tools that are affordable. I believe and always will that artist should always be able to get the tools they need no matter what their financial abilities are. Art feeds the soul and makes for a better world. So get busy making the thing you love.
You can find more weaving tools and information at Handywomanshop.com

Frequently asked questions
What kind of bobbins do your shuttle take?
All shuttles except my super slims and inkle shuttles take 4" Schacht Plastic Bobbins (actual size is 4.5") or 4.5" paper quills. Inkle shuttle take a 4.5" paper quill and my super thins take a 6" paper quill. I've been informed that Ashford bobbins also work :) .
Can I request that my shuttle take a longer bobbin?
Yes, but only for Schacht Plastic Bobbins up to 7" actual length. I do not have any other bobbins for testing. Larger bobbins require wider opening so will be slightly more expensive so message me before you place your purchase so I can create a custom listing for you. Also while I will make the rigid long shuttle wider, making it thicker would defeat the purpose of the shuttle. If you'd like the rigid long to accept a larger bobbin know that the bobbin will stick out above the sides of the shuttle.
I'd like my shuttle made in a wood species that is currently sold out. When will you have more?
Contact me and I will see if I have the wood in stock. If I do I can create a custom listing for you. I work everyday to fill sold out stock and fill orders.
I'd like my raddle to have a middle pin.
If you are ordering 1" peg spacing only raddles that are an odd number of inches long (i.e. 37") will have a pin in the middle of the raddle. I also do not stain this pin because I do not want to risk staining your lovely yarn, I will leave it to you how you identify the center pin.
