The Louet Victoria is an excellent, lightweight, easily portable double-treadle spinning wheel. This wheel has a scotch tension brake system and ratios of 1:6, 1:8.5, 1:13 (a high-speed flyer set is available separately for faster ratios). An art yarn adapter set ( sold separately) is available to make it possible to spin extra bulky and art yarns on the Victoria. The S95 is made of lacquered beech and easily folds for storage or travel; folded size is 14 x 36 x 55 cm (5 1/2” x 14 1/4” x 21 3/4”). The S96 (last photo) is the same wheel with an oak finish. Three bobbins and a lazy kate are included.
The carrying case is designed to fit the Victoria wheel along with 3 bobbins and the lazy kate. Good padding with straps to hold everything firmly in place. The bag can be carried as a back pack or with the shoulder strap or side handle.

Any customs duties or fees that may apply are the responsibility of the buyer and not included in shipping costs.
PLEASE NOTE: I rarely encounter problems with items getting lost in the mail, but it has been known to happen.

Returns & exchanges
I will accept returns of knitting needles, crochet hooks, spinning equipment, and yarn if the items are unused and unopened. If the return is a result of my error (e.g., I sent you the wrong size crochet hook). I will exchange or refund the item, and you will not be responsible for return mailing costs. If the return is not a result of an error on my part (e.g., you decided that hook just wasn't what you really wanted), I will refund your purchase price after you mail the item back to me (at your expense) and I have received it.
I cannot accept returns of spinning fiber or, for customs reasons, items or orders valued at over 22 euros.
I welcome custom orders, suggestions, ideas, and discussion! I will gladly communicate with you, answer questions, and do my best to keep my customers informed about when items are sent, the status of their orders if I'm waiting for supplies, or any other relevant information.
