Why is the Ashford Traditional Wheel the most popular wheel in the world? The Ashford Single Drive Traditional wheel’s
separate drive band and bobbin brake adjustment is easy to understand and simple to operate. The bobbins are quick and easy to change. Scotch tension and 4 speed flyer allow for a wide variety of yarn to be spun. Horizontal adjustment of the maiden bar allows perfect alignment with the 4 speed whorl.
The Ashford Traditional spinning wheel is also available with the double drive belt system. The double drive produces a fine, firm-twist yarn particularly suited for fine wools and exotic fibers. One adjustment controls both drive band and bobbin take-up. Easily converted to Scotch tension with the option attached to the wheel.
Ball bearings and the large 22 inch wheel makes treadling smooth and effortless and easy to maintain a steady speed. The wide legs give good stability especially when speed spinning. The treadle is pivoted to allow a comfortable heel-toe action.
