Great wheel

I have purchased two of these spinning wheels from Paradise Fibers. I purchased the first one as a birthday gift for my daughter. I loved this wheel so much that I purchased a second one for myself, and out of the three spinning wheels that I have this has become my number one! I think that this wheel is really well made. Very simple design, perfect for beginners!

Great for a beginner

I inherited a Kromski Polonaise from my mother, but wanted something more straifht-forward learn on. I've been spinning on this for about six months and it's been great. It's also portable (though not a travel wheel) so I can take it with me to events or when visiting friends and family. One complaint I've heard is that with Irish Tension you can't spin fine yarns, but to date I've not found that to be true. I'll be adding the high speed kit to expand what this wheel can do.

My first spinning wheel

This is my first spinning wheel. It has been wonderful and the fact I can paint it to how I like is also great. One of the cheaper ones on the market but it dose not skimp out on the quality. I spin on a nightly bases to wind down after a long day and this wheel is up for the job no mater If I'm doing a thin single or a chunky yarn. Not sized for art yarn but that is why there is an art yarn flyer you can order. It is a wheel you won't grow out of. The wheel is as good as the spinner.

Favorite Wheel

This is by far my favorite wheel to spin on. The Louet S17 wheel is a great beginner wheel also. The price is unbeatable for what you get. This is the way to go if you want to get in to spinning.

Product Details

 *LOUET PRODUCTS CAN TAKE UP TO 5 WEEKS TO SHIP OUT. CALL FOR ESTIMATED DELIVERY TIME.*

The Louet S17 has 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 whorl with three settings that can be used to obtain three spinning speeds or ratios. By using different types of bobbins and flyers this wheel can be used to produce every kind of yarn, from coarse wool to fine silks. A High Speed Set is also available for this wheel for easier spinning of very fine yarns. Finally, an excellent spinning wheel must turn freely and quietly.

Accordingly Louet uses maintenance-free ball bearings in the main hub and at the footman connection. (No lubrication is required).

The wheels are made of a laminated hardwood with a "birch" exterior finish.
