The S17 wheel is an outstanding wheel, priced for the entry-level spinner. But don't let that fool you into thinking this is anything but a really well-made, smooth spinner that will last you a very long time. There is simply nothing to go wrong with these wheels if kept safe & dry. My shop wheel has been around forever and other than a drive band every once in awhile and a little oiling, perfect! Functionally identical to their super popular S10 series, but sold unfinished. With your creative juices flowing, you can create a beautiful and uniquely finished wheel.
Excellent student wheel that you won't outgrow. No fuss wheel, made in Holland, with the highest quality materials and workmanship standards. The first generation Louet 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. 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, Louet spinning wheels 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.
You can make fabulous ART YARN with the Art Yarn Flyer for this wheel. Great for chunky, chunky/bulky, thick and thin and eye-popping blends! If purchased together, I will discount the Art Yarn Flyer (normally $149.95).

Comes partially assembled, comparable to other Louet classic wheels, the final assembly is quick and easy, with just 4 screws (Copy and paste Louet's UTube easy tutorial here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCmYCrOnVlQ ). The wood is sanded, the edges rounded and ready for a finishing with lacquer, stain or wax. This wheel is a blank canvas for embellishment! Cruise the net for some beautiful ideas for turning your wheel into a work of art! The third picture is just one idea I picked up off Pinterest and the last pic is a wheel purchased by a customer who painted it with a floral themes. The sky's the limit with the designs you can make with paint, decals, or finish.
Sheep Painted Wheel was decorated here at the shop for their promotion and is available in drop-down box at upper right. Because this was already posted on their site, the fiber offer is not available for this wheel.
