The classic design of the Elizabeth combines a large 12 spoke wheel mounted on ball bearings and a pivoted treadle for even and controlled spinning.
This double drive wheel produces a fine, firm-twist yarn particularly suited for fine wools and luxurious fibres such as silk and camel. One adjustment controls both drive band and bobbin take-up, and the wheel easily converts to single drive or bobbin lead. The adjustable maiden bar allows for perfect line up with the 3 speed whorl and is clamped in place to help prevent vibration.
In addition to the wheel, you will receive a horizontal lazy kate, 4 bobbins, a threading hook, and the Ashford Learn to Spin booklet.
Wood has a smooth lacquered finish for easy cleaning
