Country Spinner 2 spinning wheel - Ashford
Originally inspired by the Cowichan Indians on Vancouver Island spinning their thick chunky yarn, it was released in 1980 as the Indian Spinner. Over time it has morphed into the Country Spinner & in 1999 was converted to double treadle.
The NEW Country Spinner 2 with many new features including a 3 speed bobbin that allow the spinner freedom to spin an even wider range of bulky yarns.
This is a specialist wheel designed to spin extra bulky yarn used in rug weaving and chunky knitting or for plying bulk quantities. 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.
