Spinning Wheels

Most wheels are 'flat-packed' for shipping and require some basic assembly.

Ashford Traditional Spinning Wheel

The Ashford Traditional is the world's most popular spinning wheel and is terrific value for money. 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 wheel.

Ashford Traveller Spinning Wheel

The Ashford Traveller is as well-made as the Traditional. It is made from New Zealand silver beech throughout.

It is an upright or 'castle' style wheel. The flyer is positioned over the wheel giving the wheel a much smaller footprint than the Traditional. The compact design is therefore more portable - it will fit in the boot of your car more easily than the Traditional or Elizabeth.

Ashford Kiwi 2 Spinning Wheel (natural finish)

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 speeds 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 Kiwi 2 has sliding-hook flyer, larger 90mm bobbins and built-in lazy kate.

Ashford Joy Spinning Wheel

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.

These wheels are discounted because they are my last stock of the Joy 1. This model has now been superseded by the Joy 2 which has a slightly higher orifice and improved treadle joints.

Ashford Elizabeth 2 Spinning Wheel

The Ashford Elizabeth is the largest wheel in Ashford's range and it looks magnificient. 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.

Ashford e-Spinner

If you need to spin large amounts of yarn, or if you find it difficult to treadle because of back or leg problems, the e-spinner will be for you.

It is compact, very portable and easy to use. Spin at home or in your car, caravan or boat.

I love it (although my right foot keeps wanting to treadle!) I would recommend the espinner especially if you have a bad back or lots of wool to spin. It is so easy to transport and takes up no room at all - VS
