Brand new from Ashford....WAVY SHUTTLES!!!
Create interesting and decorative patterns by beating the weft into place with our wavy shuttles. You can use these shuttles with any Ashford looms. The shuttles have different size waves on each side and have a smooth lacquered finish.
Three Sizes Available:
I love the wavy fabric these create, and I find these shuttles easier to use than the cardboard version I originally tried.
Just getting loom put together. Already designing ideas in my head for use of shuttle. Think it will be a shawl using 3 colors of bamboo yarn. But first beginning project will be a cotton throw rug.
The wavy shuttle was a new discovery. My loom is just about ready to go. I am using a variegated yarn in the warp, and a slightly thicker, differently variegated yarn for the weft. Both yarns overlap in some of their colors in the variegation. It will be interesting to see how the wavy variegated pattern develops. Unless it is an absolute flop, I will post more as the weaving progresses. BTW The knowledgeable, pleasant, and kind personnel make every purchase a pleasure. Ellie is my favorite. She is a weaving guru. She always has an appropriate answer to my questions. I often wonder if there is something she doesn't know about fiber arts. I doubt it.
I saw on line how these wavy shuttles can be used - really beautiful and not easily replicated in some other way (not that I could find anyway), so it was nice to find this weaving tool on Paradise Fibers. I did wait for a discount to buy these, for they are rather pricey, and I did want to get at least one of each size, since I own Rigid Heddle looms in all 3 widths: 16", 24" and 36". Now that I received mine from Paradise Fibers and got some yarn, I'm looking forward to complete my knitting projects and go back to weaving using my newly acquired "toys". Thanks, Paradise Fibers!
love it. Very smooth and beautiful wood pattern
