FREE stand-alone Lazy Kate, and 1 additional bobbin (for a total of four).
The best way to describe this wheel is a Victoria version of the S51DT. Bobbins, flyer and the Scotch tension are the same as on the Victoria.
There are four ratios, which are: 1:6, 1:8.5, 1:12.5, 1:19. An optional high speed set, which is also the same set as the Victoria uses, provides an extra 1:27 ratio and make it easier to treadle the 1:19 on the Julia. See High Speed Kit info under Victoria.
A removable insert provides
two orifice sizes (12mm and 8mm).
The optional tensioned stand-alone Lazy Kate will hold three bobbins.

The Victoria fits perfectly in the bag that can be purchased separately. This bag can be carried as a hand bag, a shoulder bag or a back pack.
This high speed fits both the Victoria and Julia. It contains a flyer, 3 bobbins, a small whorl (you have to add this to the existing whorl) and a hook for threading the yarn through the orifice and the flyer hole. The image is of the beech set, but in the oak set the flyer disc and the hook handle are oak. The orifice is 5 mm, but you can take out the inserts and have an 8 or 12 mm orifice. Ratio's are 1:20 and 1:30.

S10 - The wheel that made Louet famous
Louet, oh Louet! My first spinning wheel, an old S10 made of oak, is a permanent part of our family. This little workhorse spends much of her time in the homes of new spinners, helping them to master the art with minimum stress. The ease of tensioning and firm takeup of the original-style Louet wheels is very much a plus for the beginning spinner.
It used to be that a Louet was a Louet, and the only decision you needed to make was what you wanted your Louet to look like. Not anymore!
The Louet wheels were originally geared towards spinning medium to heavy yarns. Although bobbins and flyers are available for spinning this type of yarn (see spinning accessories: bulky flyer), the standard wheel has been redesigned to be more suitable for spinning fine to medium yarns. The orifice and bobbins on the standard wheels are large enough to allow you to create novelty yarns. All wheels come with three bobbins and a two-bobbin lazy kate.
The S10, S10dt, and S17 models have a single belt bobbin drive with an adjustable flyer brake to regulate the yarn takeup. The flexible belts are made of polyurethane and require no adjustments. Maintenance-free ball bearings in the main hub and at the footman connection require no lubrication and provide easy, smooth treadling.
The Julia and Victoria are scotch tension single drive wheels with a polyurethane drive band.
Assembly of a Louet takes about five minutes, and the wheel can be taken apart again if you want to box it to take it on a trip. Wheels are crafted in beech and birch (Victoria in beech or oak), and come either unfinished or with a durable lacquer finish.
