Ashford Traditional Wheel – Double Drive Natural
Ashford Traditional Wheel – Double Drive Natural
FREE SHIPPING within Canada! Canadian orders only. We have this item shipped directly from the Ashford Canada warehouse, generally within one or two business days.

The same popular wheel as the scotch tension traditional, but with the benefits of both double drive for fine worsted yarns and scotch tension for softer woolen yarns. This wheel will grow with you. Simply buy the add-on kits later to allow you to spin different types of yarn.
- proven design for over 40 years, in natural finish (not lacquered)
- large 56cm (22") wheel
- robust & versatile

Why is it so popular? The separate drive band and bobbin brake adjustment is easy to understand and simple to operate. The bobbins are quick and easy to change. Scotch tension and 3-speed flyer allow for a wide variety of yarn to be spun. Horizontal adjustment of the maiden bar allows perfect alignment with the 3 speed whorl.

Ball bearings and large 56cm (22ins) wheel makes treadling smooth and effortless and easy to maintain a steady speed. The wide legs give good stability especially when speed spinning. The treadle is pivoted to allow a comfortable heel-toe action. The many optional accessories make this an extremely versatile wheel.

INCLUDED: Lazy Kate with 4 standard bobbins, threading hook, "Learn To Spin" booklet.

Bobbin capacity: 100g (3 to 4 oz). RATIOS: 6.5, 12.5, 17.5. WEIGHT: 8kg (17.5 Lbs)
