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-ons that give it the broadest spectrum of spinning in the whole Ashford range. 

Specifications

  • Choose either natural or smooth lacquer finish

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 Kromski Niddy Noddy, natural finish
  • 1 Ashford Yarn Gauge

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