Heddles

Heddles are steel wires, or thin flat steel strips held by the frame, with a loop or eye in the centre through which one or more warp yarns pass on the loom so that the thread movement is controllable in weaving.

Rapier Looms

Rapier Looms conveys a pick of weft from a stationery package, through the shed. It is either a single Rapier or a pair. Blades are either rigid rods or flexible steel tapes, which are straight when in the shed but on withdrawal are wound onto a wheel, to save floor space.

Shuttle

The shuttle is the weft insertion device that propels the filling yarn across over and under the warp yarns. Shuttles used to be shuttle looms wooden with a metal tip.
