Louët S10 CONCEPT Single Treadle, Classic, Irish Tension Spinning Wheel w/sliders
The S10 Concept wheel lets YOU build your own wheel, from the ground up. But here's the Momma of them all. The classic S10, sinhgle treadle.
If you’re going to learn to spin, we recommend Louët's S10 in either single or double treadle. The balancing hole in the Classic Style Wheel gives the wheel momentum for easier treadling and the stretchy drive band means there's only one adjustment to make while spinning. The S10 comes with three bobbins and a lazy kate, weighs 18 pounds and has a clear lacquer finish. Taking it to class or anywhere is easy since it is both sturdy and portable - just strap it into your car with a seat belt!
The best features of the Louët wheels are that they treadle lightly, are easy to learn on and can be modified to satisfy the expert spinners. The Louët wheels were originally geared towards spinning medium to heavy yarns. Although bobbins and flyers are available for spinning this type of yarn, responding to demand, 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 (1/2" ) as are the bobbins (180-250 gr. capacity) to allow you to create novelty yarns.
All wheels come equipped with a two bobbin lazy kate. All Louët wheels have 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 bobbins have a whorl with three settings on one side, that can be used to obtrain three spinning speeds.
The ratios are: 1:5.5 for slow spinning and heavy yarn, 1:7.5 for medium yarn and 1:10.5 for fast spinning and fine yarns.
