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.
Free wax, yarn gauge, fibre and copy of The Wheel magazine. And while stocks last, 'Spinning the Ashford Way' DVD.
The super low price of the Kiwi doesn't mean that Ashford have compromised build quality. The design is lightweight, portable but sturdy. You get two ratios, large 90mm bobbins and a double treadle, which makes treadling easier and it's possible to stop and start the wheel with your feet. There are plenty of add-ons for the Kiwi.

The aptly-named Joy is a modern design which looks amazing, is light and folds up small and flat for easy transport.
The built-in lazy kate folds in, the treadle board folds up and the small, light wheel can be carried by its handle or in its own carry bag. Take this wheel with you wherever you go!
It comes lacquered and assembled, so is ready to start spinning straight out of the box. It now comes with a sliding-hook flyer and 30% larger bobbins as standard.
This is the Joy 2 which has a higher orifice and new-style treadle joints. Note that Joy now only comes complete with the carry bag.
