I LOVE this wheel! I use the original Kiwi my primary wheel now. I had a Traditional but sold it. I didn't really want to like the Kiwi, because, let's face it - it's not a beautiful spinning wheel, but boy does it ever spin smoothly! I can't help but love it.

Now Ashford has the Kiwi 2!
Great value
- affordable
- easy learning ratios
- perfect starter wheel
- double treadle

This is an excellent beginner wheel due to its easy learning ratios, double treadle and affordable price. The double treadle and ball bearings allow for easy treadling and “hands-free” start. Treadles are mounted on polyurethane hinges for a smooth, quiet and comfortable heel-toe action. The stretchy drive cord does not require any adjustment as you change from one ratio to another and always maintains the correct tension. The scotch tension allows easy control of the drafting process. The central flyer is convenient for right and left-handed spinners. The wheel is easy and quick to assemble with the Allen key supplied and the robust construction makes this an ideal wheel for individuals, schools and clubs. The wheel itself is made of MDF, a high-density durable wood product that can be painted or decorated.

"The wheel is simple and easy to assemble - even for me, an elderly lady with limited movements. My English being rather basic, I assembled it just looking at the illustrations in the owner's manual. And I didn't have to study it - just sat down and started spinning. It is awesome, I got a steady thread with a slight pull. Quite a miracle!" -
Svetlana Bulanova from Pavlovo, Russianing or teaching, the Kiwi is the right wheel for you. The double treadle makes spinning more comfortable and makes it easier to stop and start.
