LOUET
Spinning Wheels


Since 1974 the Louet team in Holland has been researching, designing, experimenting and consulting with you, the customer to creat a superior line of spinning wheels. This includes well-balanced wheels which have been carefully engineered to be easy to-use, durable, low-maintenance, aesthetically pleasing and productive.


This is the original LouŽt with minor modifications to keep it on the leading edge of spinning technology. The S10's careful design has proven it to be an ideal wheel for beginners and experts alike. Its sturdy construction makes it a suitable wheel for production spinners.
The single hole in the wheel leads to a balanced flywheel, which ensures that the wheel always stops in the place that you stop. The wheel is constructed with solid lacquered wood.
Accessories available for the S10 include: skeinwinder, distaff, a four bobbin lazy kate, high speed bobbin, fatcore bobbin, flyers, and various spareparts.

The Louet S 51
If you are looking for something a little more traditional in appearance but modern in technology, look no further. The S51 combines the durable engineering of the S10 with a spoke wheel for an old fashioned yet durable wheel. The Louet S 51 Double
Treadle (DT)

The recent popularity of double treadle wheels combined with LouŽts durable design and leading edge technology lead us to the S51 DT. It treadles smoothly in a similair bicycle fashion as the S77. (Each foot travels in the opposite direction)

Accessories available for the S51-DT include: skeinwinder, distaff, a four bobbin lazy kate, high speed bobbin, fatcore bobbin, flyers, and various spareparts.




S75~ This second unfinished wheel has the traditional spoke apperance but modern in technology. Other features include the double treadling system. This double treadle works like a bicycle, both feet go in opposite directions. A single lazy kate can conveniently be positioned on either side of the wheel or a second lazy kate can be attained, placing one on each side. The unlacquered beech wheel, must be finished soon after purchase to prevent the wheel from warping.

S90~
This wheel includes all of the desirable features that a spinning wheel should have. It is precisely engineered and has different ratios than our other wheels. Ratios for the S90 are: 6.5:1; 9.5:1; and 15:1. This wheel features a wide treadle which allows you to treadle with either left or right foot, or both. The built in lazy kate holds three bobbins. The arm swings out to the left, making it convenient for plying. The lazy kate is designed to control the speed of the bobbins without any adjustments. The S90 is a bobbin lead wheel with our standard brake on the flyer.

The most remarkable feature of the S90 is that it folds completely assembled to a compact, portable and easy to carry unit. The S90 requires NO dissassembly prior to folding. All parts stay on the wheel including the optional skeinwinder. When the wheel unfolds, you can keep on spinning where you left off.

This wheel is made of beautifully lacquered beech and birch plywood. It comes pre-assembled, ready to use with four bobbins.

Accessories available for the S90 include: skeinwinder, distaff, fatcore bobbin, flyers, and various spareparts.

Technical note:
Louet is constantly trying to improve its products. An example of this is the new S90 flyer now shipping with each new S90 wheel. The flyer is manufactured to much finer tolerances insuring that the flyer is perfectly balanced to enhance performance for those spinners who treadle very quickly.
