Spinzilla Has Met Its Match: Louet's Newest Product

Looking for a new wheel for Spinzilla? Look no further than Louet’s newest offering. Sponsor of Spinzilla 2017, Louet North America is excited to launch a special offer for their entry-level S17 wheel! The S17 is an outstanding wheel, priced for the entry-level spinner at only $390.

The S17 is functionally identical to the super-popular S10 Concept wheel, featuring all the same components and utilizes the same accessories (such as art yarn flyer, bulky bobbins, high-speed flyers, bobbins, etc.) However, Louet is able to offer this great wheel at a lower price because it's unfinished and requires more assembly. 

Buy it. Paint it. Spin with it. Make it your own!
Even better, for a limited time, if you share your painted S17, Louet will send you $200 in fiber! 

Get some inspiration from spinners who've already submitted their wheel.

About Louet

Trudy Van Stralen is the founder of Louet North America and remains the driving creative force behind its continued product development.

Trudy developed a reputation in the hand dyeing community in the mid 70's. She dyed with nature's palette,(natural dyes) creating wonderful color ranges of wool fleece, mohair fiber and yarn. In addition, she sold her dyed fibers from her small shop, in the same location that Louet North America now calls home.

Trudy had learned to knit at a young age during the post WWII years in Holland, and in the 1970’s, as a fiber artist, dyeing wool and yarn, she taught herself to spin and weave.  Trudy created woven garments and was a contributing source in Handwoven and Spin-Off Magazines in the early 1980’s, as well as spinning and selling her handspun yarns at her store – Hilltop Wools.

Trudy taught her craft of hand dyeing across North America, in workshops through out the 1980’s. In the late 1980’s, Trudy wrote a book on hand dyeing entitled, Indigo Madder and Marigold, a book that is used by many as a resource  for hand dyeing with natural dyes.

In the late 90’s Trudy began creating hand knitted garments and patterns, bringing her back to her roots, growing up in Holland. Trudy often jokes that she knits in “dutch”. Today, Trudy continues developing knitting patterns with her team of knitters and designers. Trudy also designs new yarns for Louet North America.

Extraordinary fibers, fantastic colors, wonderful patterns and a company dedicated to providing you the best possible service. From hand knitting to spinning and weaving, Louet North America is committed to offering outstanding products and services. Being sensitive to environmental issues we focus on using the best of traditional and contemporary techniques, in order to produce the highest quality products we have come to be known for in the past 30 years.
