Easily converted to single drive or bobbin lead. The treadle is pivoted for a comfortable heel-toe action. INCLUDED: horizontal Lazy Kate with 4 bobbins, threading hook, "Learn To Spin" booklet.

Ashford Flexible Conrod Joint
Ashford Flexible Conrod Joint
Replacement connecting joint between the conrod and treadle rail used on Ashford wheels made since the mid 1980s. Clear polycord. Over time these turn sort of yellow and get brittle. One of the most common replacement parts we sell.

This may or may not fit other brands of wheels, it might be the wrong diameter or be too long, which you can change by cutting some off with a very sharp knife. Approximately 7cm long.

Kiwi 3 Spinning Wheel
Ashford Kiwi 3 Spinning Wheel – Lacquered finish

FREE GROUND SHIPPING within Canada! Canadian orders only. We have this item shipped directly from the Ashford Canada warehouse, generally within one or two business days. We also usually have one assembled at our store for you to try.

Ashford did a significant upgrade to the Kiwi wheel in late 2018. The main changes are folding treadles and a 3-speed whorl which provides more spinning ratios and greater flexibility. Although this is Ashford's entry-level wheel, it can do a great many things and is not a wheel spinners are likely to outgrow quickly.

For those wanting to spin art yarn or regularly do bulky spinning, the Kiwi Super Flyer is an add-on to consider. It's listed under our Ashford Accessories>Single Drive Flyers category.

The Kiwi 3 features include:
- folding treadles for convenient transport and storage
- drive wheel made from veneered MDF, for a more affordable but still attractive look
- ball bearings ensure smooth, silent spinning
- 3-speed whorl with 5.5, 7.5 and 9.5:1 flyer ratios
- double treadles, mounted on polyurethane hinges, for effortless treadling
- sliding hook flyer with frictionless yarn guides and 10mm (3/8-inch) orifice
- quick and easy bobbin change with snap-in front flyer bearing
- Scotch tension for precise tension adjustment
- includes 3 large 130gm (4 to 5oz) capacity bobbins. These are the 90mm Sliding Hook Flyer bobbins
- built-in Lazy Kate/bobbin storage pegs
- only 5.5kg (12 Lbs)
- drive wheel diameter 45cm (17.5 inches)
- Silver Beech hardwood construction (other than the drive wheel). Also available in the natural/unfinished version if you wish to apply your own finish

This continues to be an excellent beginner wheel due to its easy-to-learn ratios, double treadle and affordable price. The double treadle and ball bearings allow for easy treadling and "hands-free" start. Treadles are hinged to allow a comfortable heel-toe action. The stretchy drive cord does not require any adjustment as you change from one ratio to another 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.

INCLUDED: built-in Lazy Kate, three 90mm Sliding Hook Flyer bobbins, Threading hook, Learn to Spin booklet.

This listing is for the lacquered finish version. We highly recommend the lacquered wheel, as many spinners are so excited to get going that they never get around to putting on a finish coat themselves. Unfinished wheels can get grubby looking fairly quickly, particularly the treadles.
