About Louet Spinning Wheels....

Louet spinning wheels were originally geared towards spinning medium to heavy yarns. Although bobbins and flyers are available for hand spinning this type of yarn, the standard wheels have been redesigned to be more suitable for spinning fine to medium yarns. The orifice on the standard wheel is sufficiently large (12.5 mm or 1/2") as are the bobbins, (180-250 gr capacity), to allow you to create novelty yarns.
With one exception, all Louet spinning wheels come equipped with a two bobbin lazy kate. The S90 has a three bobbin lazy kate. Spinning fiber on a Louet spinning wheel is easy for a beginning spinner.

Technically all Louet spinning wheels are the same. Each wheel has a single belt bobbin drive with an adjustable flyer brake to regulate the tension. The flexible belts are made of polyurethane and never have to be adjusted.                   

RATIOS - All bobbins have a sheave with three settings on one side that can be used to obtain three different spinning ratios. They are: 1:5.5 for slow spinning and heavy yarn; 1:7.5 for medium yarn; and, 1:10.5 for fast spinning and fine yarn. (S45 ratios are: 7:1, 12:1 and 20:1)
The fly wheels of all our models are 50 cm ( 20") in diameter (except for the S45). They rotate on a maintenance free, lubricated for life ball bearing pack to ensure excellent spinning ability by allowing them to turn freely and quietly. The same maintenance free ball bearing is used at the footman connection. (Absolutely no lubrication is necessary for the bearings to work correctly)

With the exception of the S90, all wheels are packed and shipped partially assembled in a flat box. The required assembly consists quite simply of tightening two nuts for which tools and instructions are provided. The shipping weight is 17-18 lbs. The S90 comes pre-assembled.
