Louet S17 spinning wheel


The Louet S17 is an exceptional wheel for beginner spinners. It comes standard with 3 bobbins, lazy kate and standard flyer. 

The wheel is a Kit and needs complete assembly. The wood is unfinished - you will need to lacquer, oil, or paint your new S17. The wood will be sanded and the edges rounded. A great wheel at a great price! The first generation Louet spinning wheels, like the S10 and S17, 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. The bobbins have a sheave with three settings that can be used to obtain three spinning speeds or ratios.
