The Louet S10 Spinning Wheel, like all first-generation Louet wheels, has a single belt bobbin drive with an adjustable flyer brake to regulate tension (bobbin-lead system). This creates spinning wheels that are very easy to learn on, and also perfectly suited to spinning thick yarns and art yarns.
Sturdily constructed of lacquered solid beech and laminated birch, it is also suitable for production spinners. 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 Louet S10 bobbins have a sheave (pulley) with three settings that can be used to obtain three spinning speeds or ratios. Each wheel comes equipped with a two-bobbin lazy kate.
Finally, an excellent spinning wheel must turn freely and quietly. Because of this, Louet uses maintenance-free ball bearings in the main hub and at the footman connection. (No lubrication is required).
The Louet S10 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.
