Elizabeth 30 Spinning Wheel
Ashford made a special production run of Elizabeth 30" spinning wheels this year! The Elizabeth 30" is Ashford's premium, super smooth, luxury wheel - a truly magnificent wheel to spin on. It features a Classic Saxony style made in beautiful Beech hardwood with a smooth lacquer finish, a huge 76cm (30”) wheel, mounted on ball bearings (this wheel just won’t stop turning!), double drive and scotch tension, adjustable maiden bar for perfect alignment and tension, fast ratios, and incredibly smooth effortless treadling.
The Elizabeth 30 includes 4 double drive bobbins lacquered, a tensioned lazy kate, a threading hook, a learn to spin booklet, and a bottle of oil. Assembly is required for this single treadle wheel with 10.5, 13.5, 18:1 (22:1 bobbin lead) ratios. The bobbin capacity is 100g (3-4oz) and the orifice is 1cm (3/4").
Ashford equipment that we do not keep in-stock in-shop ships to the Wild Hand shop for Local Pick-up (FREE) or directly to your home for a flat Ashford Shipping rate determined based on your location and order size. Shipping usually takes 1-2 weeks from the time the order is fulfilled. Not all Ashford products are in-stock at all times; you may contact the shop for the most up-to-date estimated shipping date before placing your order and/or we will contact you after you place your order to confirm the ship date based on Ashford's most up-to-date information.
