What is "Shuttle (Weaving)" - Definition & Explanation

A yarn package carrier that is passed through the shed to insert weft during weaving.
A shuttle in weaving is a device used with a loom that is thrown or passed back and forth between the threads of the warp in order to weave in the weft or woof. Shuttles are often made of flowering dogwood wood because it is so hard, resists splintering, and finishes very smooth.
