A sliding hook flyer kit including 1 bobbin now available as a retro kit for all existing Joy Spinning Wheels.
This design allows the bobbins to be filled evenly with the squeeze-and-slide stainless steel hooks. The arms are made from graphite fibreglass arms make the flyer light and strong and the sliding hook flyer bobbins hold up to 30% more yarn than the previous version.
Ashford upgraded both the single and double treadle Joy Spinning Wheels to included a sliding hook flyer as standard with 3 x 90mm larger bobbins. Due to the larger bobbins, the treadle may not fold completely with these bobbins stored in previous models.
