The Louet Julia Wheel is a dream wheel for spinning fine yarns! A Scotch Tension, double-treadle setup. Spinners love Scotch Tension, the finer tension adjustments allow spinners to more easily spin fine yarns. The full sized Scotch Tension Julia is based on their Victoria wheel. It does not fold. The base with treadles can be easily disassembled from the upright with the main wheel (unit does not fold) for easy transportation.
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, and 1:19 with optional high speed set.
A removable insert provides two orifice sizes (12mm and 8mm). All rotating parts run on ball bearings for smooth operation, while the unit itself is constructed out of beech and birch plywood, smoothly lacquered. Julia Wheels are made of laminated hardwood with a Birch veneer finish.
An optional high speed set can be purchased separately, 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.
