I love my Ashford Joy 2! I bought my first Ashford 35 years ago. Now I have one to travel with. It is easy to use, and runs very smoothly!
The yarn guides on the plastic posts on the flyer don’t slide easily. My other flyer has smooth metal posts. I did use a little light weight oil to get them to move more easily. Think the manufacturer should go back to the smooth metal posts. Otherwise the flyer itself and bobbin work beautifully.
I have mixed feeling about the open ended circular orifaces that the thread/yarn passes through. It is easy to load/feed but threads constantly catch on it vs. a closed feed oriface. Still on the fence about like or dislike.
I make all my knitting, spinning, dyeing, and now weaving orders from Paradise Fibers. Great sales and nice customer service reps!
