Louet S17 Spinning Wheel

SKU LOUET-091003
In stock
Product Details

An exceptional wheel for beginning spinners. The S17 features the same quality production as our other wheels (it’s technically identical to the single treadle, Irish-tension S10), but available at a lower price because it is unfinished and in a self-assembly kit.

This wheel can be outfitted with all the same accessories as the S10 (such as adding an Art Yarn Flyer for novelty yarn or a high-speed flyer for fine spinning), allowing the wheel to grow as your skills set does. This wheel is a fabulous introduction to hand spinning at an affordable price.


  • Same hardware as S10 – same bobbin size, flyers and other accessories
  • Unfinished and full assembly required to keep price low
  • Assembly video available on YouTube channel
  • Paint your own wheel

Our bobbins all have whirls with three options for three ratio settings, allowing you to customize your yarn. These ratios are:

  • 1:5.5- For use with heavy yarns and slow spinning
  • 1:7.5- Perfect for medium yarns
  • 1:10.5- used with fine yarns or fast spinning
  • High speed bobbin ratios: 1:6.5, 1:9.5, 1:15
