Splash out and create some waves.

Creating waves in your weaving is so easy to do.

Create interesting and decorative patterns by beating the weft into place with the Ashford 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.
