The Ashford Elizabeth II is a classic fairy tale wheel. The Elizabeth II has been beautifully crafted for effortless spinning, and it looks magnificient in your home. It now has a larger 24" drive wheel mounted on ball bearings which makes for smooth effortless spinning. It is made of lovely New Zealand Silver Beech which is sourced from a sustainably-managed mill (Forestry Stewardship Council approved) in Southland, New Zealand and is naturally air-dried for up to twelve months before kiln drying.
The horizontal adjustment of the maiden bar allows perfect drive band adjustment for all 3 whorls. Maiden bar clamps to base to eliminate vibration. This Double drive wheel produces a fine, firm-twist yarn particularly suited for fine wools and exotic fibers. The Elizabeth II is easily converted from double drive to single drive or bobbin lead. The treadle is pivoted for a comfortable heel-toe action.
