Heddle Hook

Heddle HookiSmallj Heddle HookiLargej
There are two styles of heddle hooks, thick and thin.

The thin variety is for finer threads like silk.
It is also used to take out the weft threading from the center rod of the shuttle.
For that reason it is also sometimes called a weft hook.

The thick variety is used for larger thread like wool.
It has a wooden handle.
