Ashford Traditional Spinning Wheel

Ashford Traditional Spinning Wheel

The Ashford Traditional is the world's most popular spinning wheel and is terrific value for money for beginners and experienced alike. Strong and sturdy, it is made from New Zealand silver beech throughout. The design has only seen minor improvements over 40 years.

In short, the perfect first (and last!) wheel.

Out of the box, it comes with a single treadle and either single-drive or double-drive (choose when buying). You can add the second treadle and you can buy a double-drive kit to convert a single-drive model.
