REJUVENATE AN OLDER ASHFORD
 WHEEL

If you've inherited an Ashford spinning wheel, try these upgrades to make the most of your spinning experience. A Maintenance Kit contains all you need to replace worn flyer hooks, springs, brake-bands etc. To make treadling easier, replace an old drive band with a polycord Turbo Kit. For a larger capacity bobbin, add a Sliding Hook Flyer. And to make plying easier, this Lazy Kate has a tensioning system that stops bobbins over-winding and accommodates all sizes of Ashford Bobbin.
