These high-capacity shuttles are useful when weaving with rag strips or bulky yarns such as mohair or rug yarn. Ski shuttles are often used interchangeably with rug shuttles. Our ski shuttles are low-profile at only 3 cm tall and will easily pass through narrow sheds.
The runners of our ski shuttles are steam-bent to a gentle, smooth curve. Steam-bending is more complicated and time-consuming than simply cutting the runners to a curved shape, but steam-bending produces runners that are more elegant and significantly stronger for their weight. Following the bending process, the runners are thoroughly dried and then sanded and buffed to such smoothness that they will literally ski through your warp.
