The Ashford Kiwi 2 spinning wheel is an excellent beginner wheel because of it’s easy learning ratios, double treadle, and affordable price.
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 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.
Painting or decorating your Ashford Kiwi 2 spinning wheel is possible because the wheel is made of MDF, a high-density durable wood product.
