Ashford Joy 2 wheel is made to travel! This compact wheel is light weight at 11 lbs for single treadle and 13 lbs for double treadle wheels. It is portable with a folding treadle, built-in lazy kate and carry handle. Fold and go – it can be carried easily in cars, as carry-on luggage in planes (check with your airline first as this varies from aircraft to aircraft) and takes up little space at home. Spin a variety of yarns using the four ratios. The stretchy drive cord does not require any adjustment as you change from one ratio to another and always maintains the correct tension. The wheel and flyer are mounted on ball bearings for effortless spinning. Smooth and quiet with treadles mounted on polyurethane hinges to allow a comfortable heel-toe action. The Joy is available in single or double treadle models. The Joy 2 comes assembled and lacquered, ready for spinning. Included accessories: sliding hook flyer, 3 large bobbins with our new fine tolerance bearings, built in lazy kate and carry bag. It is single drive. Finished and Assembled
And why the name? Named after Joy Ashford who with her husband Walter brought spinning wheels to the world... and because it is such a Joy to use!
