    Built as a small batch, this Ashford Traditional is the only one of its kind left from the batch, as far as we know.

    It's built to the same quality and uses the same parts of the standard Trad, but just...... Well, the other way round.

    The idea is that left handed spinners find it easier to use as they can sit with the wheel by their left hand. Normal wheels are such that when sat at them you are adjacent to the wheel with your right hand.

    Demand for them was not so great hence the production of only a small batch. It may be that if you are left handed it would be comfortable spinning.

    if you'v ever wanted a wheel that is sure to turn a few heads, you may not get this chance again any time soon.



    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.

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

    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.
