Louet S90 - Limited Edition
The Louet S90 Ultimate Wheel is making a special appearance for spinning aficionados and wheel collectors alike. Previously discontinued, they're bringing it back for a limited-edition production run of 50.
The S90 Ultimate Wheel is a bobbin lead wheel with the Louet standard brake on the flyer. Compact and portable, the S90 folds up completely assembled - all parts stay on the wheel.
This wheel possesses all of the elements a great spinning wheel should have: three settings for thick, medium and fine yarns; ratios of 6.5:1, 9.5:1 and 15:1; and a wide treadle which allows you to spin with your right or left foot - or both feet, if you prefer.
The built-in lazy kate holds three bobbins, which can be flung out to the left, making it convenient for plying. The lazy kate is designed to control the speed of the three bobbins automatically without any adjustments! Made of beautifully-lacquered birch plywood, this wheel comes ready to use, complete with four bobbins.
The S90 is foldable (folded size: 29½” x 20” x 6¼”, or 75 x 51 x 16 cm) and has a lazy kate with three extra bobbins included. You can choose to brake the bobbins on the lazy kate by turning them upside down.
The main design characteristic of the wheel is the contrast between the clear and black lacquered parts. The only notable difference with the S90 from the nineties is an improved flyer with sliding yarn guides.
