    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 (22ins) wheel makes treadling smooth and effortless to maintain a steady speed. The wide legs give good stability especially when treadling at speed. The treadle is pivoted to allow a comfortable heel-toe action.
    Once you have an Ashford Traditional you dont need to "upgrade" it will do everything with the addition of the optional flyers except the very super thick yarns.
    We often hear comments on starting with an Ashford then moving up to a better wheel. This we consider a to be a nonesense comment as the Traditional will do all you need. 

    Lazy Kate and 4 bobbins included. Many more optional accessories available in the Ashford range.

    We give a £15 fibre voucher with all Ashford Wheels. Find a wheel cheaper and we will match the price and still give our deal of the fibre voucher

    As we sell a large amount of Ashford products demand sometimes overtakes the rate of supply.

    We have a weekly delivery, or more often, to us of Ashford products so when sales have overtaken the stock we hold its not long before we have more with us. Delivery normally takes 2-3 days and only a bit longer when we are out of stock of an item.  Whilst we always try and offer the Priority Service it might not always happen when we are waiting for stock. Therefore, we suggest you contact us if an order is vitally urgent.
