With a heavy heart I'm putting my much loved Louet spinning wheel up for sale. As some of you may know I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, a connective tissue disorder that causes me a lot of symptoms including hypermobile joints, pain and fatigue. Recently I've found it too painful to treadle my wheel so I've bought an electric spinning wheel to allow me to continue spinning. I love my Louet, it's not only functional it's a beautiful piece of furniture but the time has come to find it a new home.
Discontinued in 2010 the S51 DT is more or less the same as an S10 DT but with a prettier wheel.
It’s a double treadle wheel with Irish tension. It comes with 3 x three speed bobbins and a built in lazy kate which can be positioned on the left or the right. I also just fitted a brand new drive band as the old one was stretched out a bit.
I'm not exactly sure how old it is. I bought the wheel second hand and I’ve had it for 6 years. It has a few minor knocks and scratches from living in a family home and being taken to the odd meeting but it’s a solid little wheel and great fun to spin on. Spare parts and accessories are easy to come by as they are the same as the Louet S10.
£200 Buyer to collect from Worksop, Nottinghamshire.
