***** SPECIAL PROMOTION***** Louet is having a FANTASTIC promotion on their S17s. When you purchase your S17, paint it and email a photo, and Louet will send you $200 of their lovely fiber to spin! You can finish/paint it any way you like - the last 4 pics are of hand painted wheels - mine is the first one with the sheep and it's available in the drop down box at upper right. You can get all kinds of ideas from the net on how you may want to decorate your wheel if you don't already have an idea of what you want to do.
Ask me about layaway for items in my shop if this would work for you.
The S17 wheel is an outstanding wheel, priced for the entry-level spinner. 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. And there's a reward for your individuality - A reward of premium spinning fiber worth a whopping $200!
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 $145).
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 thems. The sky's the limit with the designs you can make with paint, decals, or finish.
