Louet Spinning Wheels

Louet Spinning Wheels

Louet spinning wheels logo.

Louet wheels treadle lightly, are low maintenance and nearly adjustment free and can be modified with accessories for the expert spinner.

Louet wheels were originally geared towards spinning medium to heavy yarns. Although bobbins and flyers are available for spinning this type of yarn, the standard wheels have been redesigned to be more suitable for spinning fine to medium yarns. The orifice on the standard wheel is sufficiently large (12.5 mm or 1/2") as are the bobbins, (180-250 gr capacity), to allow you to create novelty yarns.
Wheels come equipped with a two bobbin lazy kate.

Technically all Louet models are the same. Each wheel has a single belt bobbin drive with an adjustable flyer brake to regulate the tension. The flexible belts are made of polyurethane and never have to be adjusted.

All wheels are packed and shipped partially assembled in a flat box. The required assembly consists quite simply of tightening two nuts for which tools and instructions are provided. The shipping weight is 17-18 lbs.

Wheels are made of laminated hardwood with a "birch" exterior finish.

We sell all Louet Spinning Wheels with FREE SHIPPING.

WHAT YOU NEED TO GET STARTED WITH A LOUET SPINNING WHEEL:
  • carded fiber (or raw fleece and handcards)
  • 3 or more bobbins
  • niddy noddy or skeinwinder
  • Lazy Kate, preferably tensioned (if not with wheel)
  • book ("Hands on Spinning") or Video (“Spinning Wool - Basics and Beyond”)
(Nice to have, in ranked order: 1. fine flyer, jumbo flyer, spinning stool or chair, swift and either ballwinder or nostepinne; 2. spinning gauge, extra bobbins, lace flyer.)
