Two extra shafts (an odd and an even) make possible the addition of a plain weave band down the length of the fabric to any weaving structure.
The threading alternates the odd and the even shafts, either at the edges or anywhere the weaver wishes.
However, John Kay invented a loom in 1733 that incorporated a flying shuttle.
The term "Linens" can colloquially refer to any household good, but this should not be confused with linen fabric.In the early 20 century, Iban men carved these shuttles for their wives to weave cloths.The attractiveness of the women's weaving equipment enhanced their creativity as it increased their self-confidence. This shuttle was collected in 1920 by Dr Charles Hose, a colonial administrator who wrote about Sarawak.A 5-shaft satin is a good example of this complication and it is used below as an example, although the process can be used for any structure with an odd number of treadling repeats.Repeating the satin treadling twice, and the plain weave five times works, but 10 treadles are needed to weave efficiently.
The second kind is often described as an automatic loom, but except for shuttle movement it is no more automatic in its operation than the hand-moved or so-called nonautomatic loom.
