S90 the modern classic . . .
Shuttleworks' selling price for the S90 is $945.95 CAD, a great buy from a great store.
The Louet S90, a classic portable spinning wheel is now in stock at Shuttleworks. Each of these limited edition wheels is signed by the designer, Jan Louët. Only 50 of these wheels are available worldwide - Shuttleworks has several in stock.
The S90 is a folding wheel (folded size: 29½” x 20” x 6¼”) and is equipped with an integral 3 bobbin lazy kate (total of four bobbins included). You can choose to brake the bobbins on the lazy kate by turning them upside down to rub against an imbedded stopper or let them free wheel. The wide center single treadle lets you treadle with your left, right or both feet for maximum comfort.
The striking design feature of the wheel, besides folding, is the contrast between the clear and black lacquered parts. However, the only notable difference with the S90 from the original 90's version is an updated flyer with sliding yarn guides.
