Ashford

Joy Wheel (shown below): Comes with built in lazy kate & three bobbins, each of which holds between 3-4 ozs.of spun yarn. Offers ratios of 6, 8, 11, & 14:1. Weighs 11 lbs and folds for easy transport. Scotch tension and ball bearings. A really nice portable wheel with a decent range of ratios. Double Treadle Requires minimal assembly I usually have this one in stock....tho' I usually stock the double treadle since that is what most customers seem to prefer, but can order the single if you want.

.

Traditional Wheel (shown below): Comes with separate lazy kate & four bobbins, each of which holds between 3-4 ozs of spun yarn. Offers ratios of 6.5, 7.5, 10, 12.5, 14, and 17.5:1. Weighs 17.5 lbs. Can be set up & interchanged easily for either scotch tension or as double drive, depending upon which ratios you desire. A favorite among those desiring the traditional "fairy tale" style wheel or wanting to spin finer weight yarn, since the higher ratios of this model are well suited to finer spinning. Single Treadle Requires complete assembly.
