The Ashford Country Spinner 2

This is one amazing wheel. It's got a massive bobbin capacity. It's got a giant orifice. This wheel has huge potential!

I love my Country Spinner. I use it to create all my chunky art yarns and for making larger quantities. You can fit up to a kilo of yarn on this baby! 

The large 27mm orifice means you never have to worry about your yarns not fitting through your wheel. Spin locks, beads, coils, super boucle or anything else you can imagine on this wheel. 

This wheel has irish tension (which is good for chunkier yarns, as it helps to pull your yarn onto the bobbin faster) and double treadle action. It has space for two extra bobbins on the built in lazy kate. 

Even though the ratios are fairly slow, you can still spin other types of yarn easily. I have made fine four ply weight yarn on this wheel with no trouble. 

This is a wheel for art yarn enthusiasts, dreamers or those who want to spin a lot of yarn! 

Comes in unfinished wood, and ready for you to assemble. A lacquered option is also available.
