Ashford Kiwi Spinning Wheel

This is Ashford entry level wheel. Affordable and with exciting capabilities with it's huge array of custom accessories such as the super flyer for creating art yarns - you will not be disappointed with the Kiwi! 

Named after the iconic New Zealand bird, the Kiwi2 wheel is an excellent beginner wheel due to its ease of use, double treadle, affordable price and versatility.

The double treadle and ball bearings allow for easy treadling and “hands-free” start. Treadles are mounted on polyurethane hinges for a smooth, quiet and comfortable heel-toe action. The stretchy drive cord does not require any adjustment as you change ratios and always maintains the correct tension. The scotch tension allows easy control of the drafting process. The central flyer is convenient
for right and left-handed spinners. The wheel is easy and quick to assemble with the Allen key supplied and the robust construction makes this an ideal wheel for individuals, schools and clubs.

The wheel itself is made of MDF, a high-density durable wood product that can be painted or decorated.

You also have the option of getting it professionally customised by Louise for a little extra.
