Louet's Bobbins are BIG compared to other manufactures. This is why you will not see a jumbo flyer for sale, and why we LOVE Louet for both beginners and production spinners. Louet Standard bobbins can hold up to 1/2 lb fiber, and it's Bulky bobbin holds even more. The Fat core bobbin is intended to fill less quickly, producing a large bobbin with a little less capacity for fine yarns. Louet has also just introduced the Art Yarn Flyer to compliment the creation of artistic yarns; find this item under our "Louet Flyers" product.
Specific bobbin specifications are below. Feel free to contact us at any time with questions and our wheel techs will be glad to help!
