Ashford Country Spinner 2 – 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 often have one assembled at our store for you to try. The Country Spinner 2 was rejigged a few years back, and is a really awesome wheel with giant bobbins for spinning large amounts of bulky yarns and especially thick art yarns. Ashford states that this wheel is for "big yarns". - huge capacity bobbin - double treadle - large orifice (27mm = 1-1/16 inch) - spin thick novelty yarns or large amounts of thick yarns This listing is for the lacquered version. We highly recommend getting the finished 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. This is a specialist wheel designed to spin extra bulky yarn used in rug weaving and chunky knitting or for plying bulk quantities. The orifice is extra large and the bobbins have a huge capacity. The ball bearings and double treadle allows for an easy start and treadling. The slow drive ratio and sensitive leather flyer brake system are ideal for creating unique novelty yarns. Made from Silver Beech hardwood. Ashford's redesign a few years back includes: new 3-speed bobbin with easy 3, 4 and 5:1 ratios. New polyurethane con-rod joints for smooth heel-and-toe treadling. Wider spaced treadle boards. Arched rails and factory assembled sides are easily assembled with bolts and barrel nuts. New maintenance-free polyurethane hinges for smooth and effortless treadling. Soft leather brake band and sensitive tension adjustment INCLUDED: 1 country spinner bobbin, Threading hook, Learn to Spin booklet. Bobbin capacity: 1kg (2.2 Lb). PRODUCT of NEW ZEALAND
