According to Ashford, this is the world’s most popular wheel with both double drive and scotch tension system.
Like the Ashford Traditional spinning wheel but with the double drive belt system. The double drive produces a fine, firm-twist yarn particularly suited for fine wools and exotic fibres. One adjustment controls both drive band and bobbin take-up. Easily converted to Scotch tension with the option attached to the wheel. With ball bearings and its large drive wheel treadling is smooth and effortless and the treadling speed is easily controlled.
