My personal take on the Ashford E Spinner 3 - I LOVE it! This has become my go-to wheel. I find I prefer to use my E spinners (including the new Ashford Super Jumbo E wheel) when i'm at home, as they take up less space, fit nicely on a bookshelf, are simple to set up and put away when guests come, and I can sit with my feet up with the pedal beside me on the sofa (which I opperate with my hand) and spin while watching the tv. :-)
I also find I spin more generally, and more consistently, each time I spin. I've got a lot of spinning done since I have owned this E spinner! So, great for production or serious knit-a-holics. It makes plying a large project easy.
The bag it comes with is delightful. Everything packs away so neatly and in its right place, it feels a joy. Travelling with the wheel is easy, and lightweight. It comes with multiple plug sockets for different countries, so it almost encourages you to have a break somewhere lovely and spin!
For those with fatigue issues (I'm one of you!) this is great for those evenings when treadling feels like too much, but you still want to spin.
Great for begginner spinners, as you can turn the speed right down and use the foot pedal to learn with a "park and draft" style - I've taught people how to spin in minutes using this wheel. It is of course perfect too for seasoned spinners, as the speed goes all the way up to 1200 rpm, and goes faster than most can keep up with!
In summery, this wheel in super tiny, great for small spaces, for a busy home, for those that like to travel and for those wanting to spin more yarn!
