SKU: SP0103
Add to Wishlist

The Louet S17 has a single belt bobbin drive with an adjustable flyer brake to regulate tension. This results in spinning wheels that are very easy to learn how to spin on, and also very suitable to spin thicker yarns. The bobbins have a whorl with three settings that can be used to obtain three spinning speeds or ratios. By using different types of bobbins and flyers this wheel can be used to produce every kind of yarn, from coarse wool to fine silks. A High Speed Set is also available for this wheel for easier spinning of very fine yarns. Finally, an excellent spinning wheel must turn freely and quietly.

Accordingly Louet uses maintenance-free ball bearings in the main hub and at the footman connection. (No lubrication is required).

The wheels are made of a laminated hardwood with a "birch" exterior finish.
