Sulky Blendables #4015 ~ Cool Waters

Isn't this a pretty color? I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying working with these threads! I feel like a real tatter! ; )

The shuttle was a gift from Fox. I had tried it before with some size 20 Lizbeth, and it just didn't work well for me. You may remember that for a while I didn't enjoy using the bobbin shuttles with the fine thread. Size 40 seemed to be the best fit for me. However, now that I've been using the 30 wt Sulky Blendables with the bobbin shuttles for a while, I'm finding that I really like the bobbin shuttles.

I think this is one of the Pony shuttles, and except for the protrusion at the end, I really like it. I love the ratcheting sound when I unwind thread from the bobbin. Maybe I should have a Pony shuttle in every color... or two! 


  1. Ha! I had forgotten about that!

    I am so glad you are enjoying the bobbin shuttles. They are addictive, as it is so nice to have that hook always handy, isn’t it?

    I do admire all your work with tiny threads. I have become very used to #40, which is all I use right now, except for a couple of #80’s.

    I do believe you have inspired me sufficiently to check my #80 stash and see I could tat with some of my thinest threads... after the Blomqvist Sunflower, which I could NEVER have managed in minuscule!
    Fox : )
