The Louet Spinning Wheel: Designed with You in Mind
The Louet Spinning Wheel has long held the reputation as one of the premier yarn making tools from Holland. Our newly redesigned spinning wheel uses 40 years of research and development to meet the needs and desires of our customers.
The Spinning Wheel
Each professional quality spinning wheel uses a single belt bobbin drive, which allows users to easily regulate the tension with the adjustable flyer brake. Now designed to better handle fine to medium yarns, accessories may be purchased to use the wheel for larger yarns. Sturdy hardwood construction is built to last as the birch inspired laminate provides long lasting beauty.
A Bit on the Bobbins
A two-bobbin lazy kate, the large orifice, which is 12.5 mm (1/2"), and the 180-250 gr capacity bobbins are perfect for making novelty yarns. Our bobbins all have sheaves with three options for three ratio settings, allowing you to customize your yarn. These ratios are:
? 1:5.5 - For use with heavy yarns and slow spinning. ? 1:7.5 - Perfect for medium yarns. ? 1:10.5 - Used with fine yarns or fast spinning. ? (The Victoria model's bobbin ratios are 6:1, 8.5:1, 13:1, and 20:1)
Maintenance Free Construction
Operator convenience was our number one priority with the newest option. Ball bearings, which never need lubrication, allow easy, smooth rotation of the flywheels and the footman connection. The belt is made from flexible polyurethane and never needs adjusting.
The light weight spinning wheels by Louet have a shipping weight of 12 - 18 pounds and require minimal assembly; simply tighten two nuts using the included tool. The flywheels are 50 cm (20") in diameter.
