F.A.Q.'s | Overview

Q.

Why would I add the Ashford Double Treadle Kit to my Traditional or Traveller Wheel?

A.

Many spinners have found a transition to a Double Treadle kit to be an improvement both to the results of the spinning (the quality of yarn) as well as their physical well being.

Some spinners find that single treadle force them to sit in an uncomfortable way, causing them some pain and discomfort. We've heard from a number of spinners who tell us that the double treadle eliminates that discomfort by removing the angle that one must sit at for single treadle spinning.

The double treadle, we are told, also gives the spinner smoother treadling and the ability to start the wheel without using their hand.
