for the love of plum

shuttle plum wood

Now we are making several of our classic shuttles in plum. We just love plum!  It really is just beautiful.  It has a wide range of grain contrast and can even have purple, red, and green strips.  We have  some from old (old!) plums trees that were in our fruit orchard and also have selvedged from friends houses too.  It is from an old variety that was very popular.  A very sour small yellow plum.  Our ancestors praised sour plum for it gut loving powers.  Japanese still love there salted sour plums.  Sadly a lot of people cut them down for new sweet plum varieties.  At least we can make shuttles of them.  We have even taken some wood from peoples bon fire piles!

You will find them on our etsy shop.
