        After watching Lesson 3, I see you are using 4″ bobbins with Schact open bottom boat shuttles.  What size Schact shuttles do you use?

          The size of shuttle depends on what’s comfortable in your hands.  The 4″ bobbin fits into the 9″ and 11″ Schacht shuttles, to answer your specific question but I tend to use a smaller shuttle when weaving a narrower warp or weaving on a smaller loom.  I use a larger one on a wide warp to gain the advantage of a bit more weight.  As Jane would say, it depends on what feels right in your hand.
