We have this wheel ready to try out at Wentworth.

The new Kiwi 3 has folding treadles, timber veneered MDF wheel, three speed whorl and a wooden threading hook! With all the great features of the Kiwi 2, the enhanced Kiwi 3 will be even more in demand from new and experienced spinners everywhere.

Because this is the cheapest wheel in the Ashford range it is often referred to as a beginners wheel. This is an incorrect description as it is capable of producing all types of yarn. The additional flyer whorls and Superflyer are add on's that give it the broadest spectrum of spinning in the whole Ashford range. 

Specifications

  • Robust construction quick and easy to assemble with the Allen key supplied
  • Choose either natural or smooth lacquer finish
  • Scotch tension for precise tension adjustment
  • Double treadle, mounted on polyurethane hinges, for effortless treadling
  • 3 speed whorl with 5.5, 7.5 and 9.5:1 flyer ratios
  • Sliding hook flyer with frictionless yarn guides
  • Quick and easy bobbin change with snap-in front flyer bearing
  • Folding treadles for convenient transport and storage
  • Timber veneered MDF wheel with ball bearings ensure smooth, silent spinning

A word on double treadles. All Ashford wheels with double treadles will work if only a single treadle is used. It is not necessary to use both treadles. Treadling with a single foot either right or left works. Therefore, you have the options of two feet, or left or right foot treadling.

Optional SpinPlus+ Kit

  • 1 Pair Wingham Standard Carders
  • 1 Ashford Niddy Noddy, natural finish
  • 1 Ashford Yarn Gauge

£50 When bought with your wheel. RRP £60. 

Ashford Wheels and Looms - Pre-ordering Terms & Conditions

Due to the current situation surrounding Covid 19 we have started to get low on stocks for certain wheels and looms. This is especially true for Ashford equipment, as the the UK distributor went into shutdown.

Normally we hold plenty of stock ready for immediate dispatch, but as time goes on this has been slowly depleted, so we are no longer able to ship wheels to our normal delivery schedule. We have been informed by the distributor they plan to be back in action from mid April, and then they'll start shipping out orders to retailers.

Because of this there are a few things to take into account when pre-ordering Ashford equipment:

  • Full payment will be taken at the time of ordering
  • Expected delivery is within 30 days, however this is not guaranteed. By ordering you accept that delivery may be longer.
  • You must place a separate order for wheels and looms. If you include anything else with your order it will not be dispatched until your equipment is ready to be shipped.
  • You may cancel your order at any time for a full refund.
