Ashford Traveller Single or Double Drive Spinning Wheel w/ 45.00 Gift Certificate + *Free US Shipping!
In my opinion, the Ashford Traveller wheel is a good and economical choice for a new or experienced spinner. It is an attractive and capable wheel that will last you for years and years.
The Ashford Traveller Single or Double Treadle Spinning Wheel is a great little wheel that suits most spinners. The lightweight Traveller wheel is a compact castle wheel that will spin fine to medium yarn using the four drive ratios on the single drive wheel and 2 ratios on the single drive wheel and bulky yarn with the optional jumbo flyer. The wheel is easy to start with the double treadles that are hinged to allow a comfortable heel-toe action. Ball bearings make treadling smooth and effortless. With the Traveller you also have the bonus of portability. The wheel has been designed to fit snuggly into the trunk or back seat of your car, so it's easy to take it with you to workshops, and spin-ins.
The wheel is made from solid 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 Traveller comes complete with 4 bobbins, threading hook, Learn to Spin booklet, and built in lazy kate.
This wheel is available unfinished or with a factory Lacquer Finish and comes unassembled.
Included Accessories: 4 bobbins, Learn to Spin on an Ashford Wheel booklet, complete assembly instructions, built in lazy kate, Ashford metal threading hook, plus a copy of the Ashford Newsletter entitled The Wheel.
