We’ve got some exciting news! My father Jan Louët and I will personally sign the first 300 Buddy spinning wheels. That’s 100 of each wheel variant! If you’d like to get your hands on a uniquely signed unit, make sure to pre-order quickly from one of our dealers. We’re thrilled to add a personal touch to your new Buddy.

Warm regards, Loes van Aken

Time flies. In October, we introduced our spinning wheel Buddy with great enthusiasm. We designed this versatile spinning wheel with quality, affordability, and ease of use in mind, and we’re delighted with the positive feedback we’ve received.

Just as a reminder, here are the key features of our Buddy spinning wheel:

  • Available with a wide or double treadle, and as a compact folding travel wheel.
  • Equipped with 5 ratios (1:4 to 1:18) and an orifice of 18 mm with a special 12 mm insert.
  • Featuring Dutch tension: the spinning wheel is bobbin-led, but due to the aerodynamic design of the flyer, you can spin with very little pull on the yarn.
  • All wheels come with four bobbins and a stand-alone lazy kate for three bobbins, and Travel Buddy also comes with a backpack.
