The Louet standard bobbin comes in a lacquered version that fits the S10, S10 DT, and S51 DT wheels and an unlacquered version that fits the S17, S15, and S75 wheels. Ratios for these wheels are 5.5:1 for slow spinning and heavy yarn; 7.5:1 for medium yarn; and 10.5:1 for fast spinning and fine yarn. Bobbins are very large capacity and will hold approximately 180-250 gm of yarn.
The Louet S45 requires a bobbin specific to that wheel; that bobbin is also available in this listing (fifth photo).
The high speed IT bobbin was designed to make it easier to spin finer yarns, with ratios of 6.5:1, 9.5:1 and 15:1 The high speed bobbin will fit on all current and discontinued Louet wheels EXCEPT: S40, S45, Victoria, Julia, S87, S90.
The standard bobbin for the Victoria (S95) and Julia (S11) wheels is lacquered beech (pictured),. An oak version is also available for the S96 Victoria.
If you have the high-speed set for the Victoria or Julia spinning wheels and want additional bobbins, order the high-speed ST bobbin. This bobbin can only be used with the high-speed flyer that is sold as part of the set (see separate listing).
Bulky bobbins are available in a separate listing, or contact me.
Please indicate your choice of bobbin type(s).
