Louet Accessories Details
Louet spinning wheels are manufactured in the Netherlands and Pacific Wool and Fiber has been offering them for sale for over 12 years. They are robust, sturdy wheels, that have stood the test of time and that will enable you to spin your favorite yarn. Louet wheels were originally geared towards spinning medium to heavy yarns. Over the last few years Louet bobbins and flyers have been redesigned to be more suitable for spinning fine to medium yarns including Art Yarns.
The orifice on the standard wheel is 1/2 inch wide and the bobbins are a generous size, so that they can hold a lot of yarn, (bobbins for the Julia and Victoria are smaller), to allow you to create novelty yarns. The drive wheel of all Louet spinning wheels rotate on maintenance free, lubricated for life, ball bearings to ensure excellent spinning ability by allowing them to turn freely and quietly. The same maintenance free ball bearing is used at the footman connection. (Absolutely no lubrication is necessary for the bearings to work correctly)
