S10 ST Spinning Wheel

(1 customer review)





The first generation Louët 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. 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 sheave with three settings that can be used to obtain three spinning speeds or ratios. By using different types of bobbins and flyers, Louët 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.

    The Louet S10 is a workhorse of a wheel. Sturdy, well balanced and can be lugged around anywhere. The Irish Tension is easy and versatile. Highly recommended for both a beginning spinner or experienced. FYI, the orifice accommodates thick and thin yarn weights too.

      Hi Lisa. This is the wheel that I have too! Purchased mine 10+ years ago and like you said, its a real workhorse. I drag this wheel with me to all my fiber events and groups. Louet products are well-built… Most spinners will always have this wheel in their “wheel stash” as it is a go-to wheel for many many applications. I love mine.
