S40 suitcase spinning wheel

For people who also want to spin outdoors, a portable spinning wheel was developed in 1979: the S40. Due to its dimensions (30 x 40 x 17 cm) and case design, it is convenient to carry. The operation of this spinning wheel is based on a (for Louët) new principle: the flight is driven without strings and the tension is regulated by braking the spool (Scotch tension). The flywheel and flight run on double ball bearings. The spinning wheel was discontinued in 1994, but spare parts are still available.

A limited edition of this spinning wheel was made in 2015.
