The Ashford Elizabeth 2 Spinning Wheel is the Fairytale Wheel we all dream of. This beautifully crafted double-drive wheel has a large, 61cm (24ins) wheel, with 12 spokes mounted on ball bearings for smooth, effortless spinning. This divine wheel produces a fine, firm-twist yarn, particularly suited for fine wools and exotic fibres.
Enjoy efficiency with one adjustment to control both drive band and bobbin take-up. The Elizabeth 2 is easily converted to single drive or bobbin lead, and the treadle is pivoted for a comfortable heel-toe action. Horizontal adjustment of the maiden bar allows for perfect alignment with the 3 speed whorl. The maiden bar clamps to the base to eliminate vibration.
Horizontal lazy kate with 4 bobbins included.
