Ashford Elizabeth 2 Spinning Wheel
The Ashford Elizabeth is the largest wheel in Ashford's range and it looks magnificent. The classic fairytale wheel. Beautifully crafted from New Zealand silver beech throughout.
The drive wheel itself is very large, 24"/61cm, mounted on ball bearings, which means that it is smooth, effortless and comfortable to treadle for long periods. Once you've started it with a gentle push, it almost turns itself, particularly in double-drive mode.
The Elizabeth is able to switch between double and single-drive modes, to suit your preference and different styles of spinning.
