It looks like a Louet S10 (what I have) but all the Louets look similar to me.
I love this wheel, its so easy to use.
I have been creating yarn (spindle in 1998, wheel in 2002) and have always wanted to spin on a Louet. I've have heard nothing but raves from their owners.
I started out on a wheel in 2002 with an Ashford Traveller DT, DD with optional scotch tension. Took right to the DD, still don't like the scotch tenson on this wheel.
In 2004 I expanded my wheels to a late 1700 Irish Style saxon style flax wheel and a 1970's era Ashford Traditional ST SD. The Christmas of 2006, my darling DH got me a late 1800's Great Wheel.
This past year, a spinning student brought a Schact Matchless (which I loved as a Scotch tension, but not so much as a DD).
I've also spun on a Babe's wheel and a Babe's electric.
All this to say that finally, this past spring I was finally able to sit down with a lot of various manufacture's wheels and take a test spin. I was looking for a more portable wheel since my job has me traveling for extended periods a few times a year.
I spun a couple Louet models, the HitchHiker, Little Gem II and I found my one-true-love wheel .... the Kromski Sonata.
As much as I was looking forward to the Louet's, I have to say I was highly disappointed in them. They treadled very stiff compared to the other manufactures that I tried. I was shocked!!!
Please don't take me wrong. Louet has too many followers to make this an inefficient wheel, but it just wasn't my style
so ..... anyone want to buy a late 1700's Irish style saxon wheel or a mid 1970's Ashford Traditional??
I want to get me a Kromski Sonata!!!
That is a beautiful yarn!! Simply Stunning! I love natural colors.
The wheel seems to suit you wonderfully!! What was the weight of the roving you used?? Do you know how much the bobbin will hold??
I know on my Ashford Traveller, I need quite a few singles plyed onto my Jumbo bobbin to make enough for a sweater!!!
