In my opinion, this is a good, affordable, entry level spinning wheel that will last you for many years to come. The NEW FOLDING TREADLES make it so much easier to transport to spinning get-togethers or classes. If you're learning or teaching, the Kiwi is the right wheel for you. The double treadle makes spinning more comfortable, it also makes it easier to stop and start.
The Ashford Kiwi Spinning Wheel is an excellent beginner wheel due to its easy learning ratios, double treadle and affordable price. The double treadle and ball bearings allow for easy treadling and hands-free start. The treadles are mounted on polyurethane hinges for effortless treadling. The stretchy drive cord does not require any adjustment as you change from one ratio to another and always maintains the correct tension. The scotch tension allows precise, easy control of the drafting process. The central flyer is convenient for right and left-handed spinners. The wheel is easy and quick to assemble with the Allen key supplied and the robust construction makes this an ideal wheel for individuals, schools and clubs.
The Kiwi 3 has a 6 Spoke wheel, new design Polyurethane treadle hinges, polyurethane conrod joints, wider spaced treadle boards, easy bolt and barrel nut assembly, and includes Sliding Hook Flyer with frictionless yarn guides and 3/8 inch orifice, snap fit front flyer bearing for quick and easy bobbin change.
