The single hole in the wheel
leads to a balanced flywheel, which ensures, that the wheel always stops
in the place where you stop.
The bobbins have a sheave (whorl) with three
settings that can be used to obtain three spinning speeds or ratios. By
using different types of bobbins and flyers, Louët spinning wheels can
be used to produce every kind of yarn, from coarse wool to fine silks.
Each wheel comes equipped with a two bobbin lazy kate. 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 we use maintenance-free ball bearings in the main hub and at
the footman connection. (No lubrication is required). The spinning
wheels are disassembled to the extent that they can be packed flat and
shipped economically. The assembly consists of tightening two nuts for
which tools and instructions are included.
