Shuttles

An "*" before the item description indicates an item that is available for wholesale distribution.


The more common tatting technique in which the thread is wound around a small shuttle, the shuttle in turn used to make a sequence of knots on the working thread through somewhat difficult hand manipulations. The shuttle which is passed back and forth through a working loop should be small enough to handle between the fingers. This will generally limit the thread size to the finer threads, to avoid constant rewinding of the shuttle. A point or hook on one end of the shuttle is used to make a joining stitch and is preferred by some tatters. The experienced tatter will generally prefer a shuttle without a point as the point can be in the way of a fast moving shuttle. Accessory hooks are available which can be worn around the neck or on the finger.
