It features all the best modern aspects of the latest desgns of Ashford Traditional wheels:  Lovely smooth wheel motion due to the modern bearing system;  3 speed flyer (which has grooves to allow the yarn to be taken up without catching/wearing the wood);  The wood has not been treated so it can be oiled to take whatever colour you prefer.

Comes with a lazy kate and 4 bobbins and a spare flexi cord drive band.  A rare opportunity to pick up a 'new' spinning wheel at a great price.  Buyer to collect from Swansea.
