This is the spinning wheel for big yarns! The Ashford Country Spinner 2 is a specialist wheel designed to spin extra bulky yarn used in rug weaving and chunky knitting, or for plying bulk quantities from smaller bobbins.

The orifice is extra large. The ball bearings and double treadle allows for an easy start and treadling. The slow drive ratios and sensitive leather flyer brake system are ideal for creating unique novelty yarns.
