The wheel has been designed to fit snugly into the trunk of your car, so it's easy to take it with you to workshops, and spin-ins. The wheel is made from solid New Zealand Silver Beech and comes complete with 4 bobbins, threading hook, learn to spin booklet, and built in lazy kate. The Traveller Spinning Wheel now comes with Double Treadle as standard.

I bought the first single treadle double-drive Ashford Traveller in this country back in about 1984. It was shipped to me from NZ. In a moment of wheel ****, I sold it to buy a double treadle of a different make (which I will not mention). for a while I was happy but now I wish I had my little Traveller back. The one I bought in its place folds up and is a **** nuscence. The Traveller was so easy to tote around. Do not hesitate on this wheel—it is one of the best! I wish I could find the woman who bought it from me—I would buy it back!
This is my second wheel and I couldn't be happier. It spins vey smoothly, and the whorls it comes with give me a great range of yarns to spin. I absolutely love the built in lazy kate, and the accessories that are available make it great to grow with.
This is one of the greatest little wheels ever. It is superb to grow with. Its a great basic wheel. As you advance in your spinning journey you can customize with different whorls, flyers, a spindle add on, and different tension mechanisms. Best wheel ever!
