Ashford Traveller Spinning Wheel
The Ashford Traveller is as well-made as the Traditional. It is made from New Zealand silver beech throughout.
It is an upright or ‘castle’ style wheel. The flyer is positioned over the wheel giving the wheel a much smaller footprint than the Traditional. The compact design is therefore more portable – it will fit in the boot of your car more easily than the Traditional or Elizabeth.
The flyer is quite high, 80cm from ground to orifice.
It has a double treadle as standard, which makes treadling easier and makes it possible to start and stop the wheel with your feet. It comes with Single drive, but there is a double-drive option.
There are lots of optional extras you can add to your Traveller wheel: jumbo flyer unit, lace flyer kit, high-speed flyer kit, double treadle kit (if you buy a new wheel from us it will be double-treadle, but if you have an older single-treadle wheel, the kit will convert it to double-treadle), extra bobbins, distaff.
