 To celebrate Louet's  fourtieth anniversary, Louet have transformed the spinning wheel it all started with: the S10.  

  • The S10 C all have a single belt bobbin drive with an adjustable flyer brake to regulate tension. This results in spinning wheels that are very easy to learn how to spin on, and also very suitable to spin thicker yarns.
  • Sturdily constructed of lacquered solid beech and laminated birch, it is also suitable for production spinners. The single hole in the wheel leads to a balanced flywheel, which ensures, that the wheel always stops in the place where you stop.
  • The bobbins have a whorl with three settings that can be used to obtain three spinning speeds or ratios. By using different types of bobbins and flyers, Louet spinning wheels can be used to produce every kind of yarn, from coarse wool to fine silks.
  • Each wheel comes equipped with a two bobbin lazy kate.
  • A High Speed Set is also available for this wheel for easier spinning of very fine yarns.
  • Louet wheels have  maintenance-free ball bearings in the main hub and at the footman connection,. (no lubrication is required), allowing the wheel to turn freely and quietly.
  • The spinning wheels are disassembled so that they can be packed flat and shipped economically. The assembly consists of tightening two nuts for which tools and instructions are included.
  • Specifications: - Main wheel: 50 cm (19 3/4")

As a Spinner, I much prefer Double treadle wheels,

  • They are better for your body, in that each leg is active, and it is a gentler action
  • The double treadle position one in the centre of the wheel, you are not reaching to one side, so your posture is better.

I also prefer sliding glides on the flyer arms... easier to operate, easy to move.

Each package listed below has a base, wheel, mother of all, a flyer, 3 bobbins and a twine rack and block for holding your bobbins while plying.

ST = single treadle  DT = Double treadle 3S = 3 spoke wheel  5S= 5 spoke wheel

IrT = Irish tension (Bobbin lead- the bobbin is spun by the main wheel band and the flyer is braked)   

ScT = Scotch Tension (Flyer lead - the flyer is spun by the main wheel band and the bobbin is braked ) 

  

Here are your choices:  Double Treadle with flyers with sliding glides

       You can always Adapt the S10 Concept wheel by buying different components.

      • change from single to double treadle (or vice versa) or
      • change from Irish to Scotch tension and vice versa.
      •  If you like to spin with Scotch tension and ply with Irish tension, as that will allow you to ply faster,  you can convert your wheel to Irish tension by buying an Irish tension mother of all, flyer and bobbins.  It takes just a few minutes to convert your wheel from one system to another
      • add accessories like a stand alone lazy kate or a high speed set for very fine spinning
