Julia is truly a dream wheel for spinning fine yarns! A Scotch Tension, double-treadle setup. Spinners love Scotch Tension (flyer-led), the finer tension adjustments available in a Scotch Tension system allow spinners to more easily spin fine yarns. Julia is a full-size modern wheel that disassembles with a single knob for packing and flat, but does not fold. Store and transport in the optional carrying case.
This wheel can easily be upgraded to a lace-weight-spinning miracle by adding on the high-speed spinning set. An optional High Speed Kit, which is also the same set as the Victoria uses, provides an extra 27:1 ratio and make it easier to treadle the 19:1 on the Julia. The high speed spin set is also in stock and ready to ship. You can use your coupon for this item.
The Louet Julia spinning wheel is like a "grown up" Victoria. The Julia's bobbins, flyer, and Scotch tension are all the same as on the Vic. This wheel has a graceful presence and spins like an absolute dream.
The bobbins for the Julia spinning wheel are the same as the Louet Victoria so it's the perfect compliment to the Vic. Spin at home on the beautiful Julia and take the tiny Vic to your guild meetings or on vacation, traveling with you.
Ratios: There are four ratios 6:1, 8.5:1, 12.5:1 and 19 to 1.
Removable orifice insert provides two orifice sizes (12mm and 8mm). All rotating parts of the Louet spinning wheel run on ball bearings for smooth operation, while the wheel itself is made of beech and birch plywood, smoothly finished and lacquered. The Julia comes with a stand-alone Lazy Kate with an adjustable brake and four bobbins.
Though Louet discontinued this wheel to make their S10 Concept Series, we dealers can still "build" them to keep them available as they were quite popular. I typically have one made up, ready to ship.
