"The Kiwi 3 may cost a little more but you won't go wrong with this superb quality double treadle folding wheel! It's a smooth running single drive model with easy to use scotch tension and a stretchy drive band!"


Everything you'll need to get started is included in the box. Fitted with a sliding hook 3 speed flyer with a stretchy drive band that does not require any adjustment as you change from one ratio to another, smooth and quiet treadles on polyurethane hinges and ball bearings on the main wheel. Comes with 3 bobbins, an orifice threading hook, a learn to spin booklet and some free fibre to get you going. The foot treadles fold up for transport or storage and an optional fitted bag is also available. You'll need to unpack and self assemble the wheel following the instructions provided.

Options...

This wheel comes from the factory left as natural untreated wood. It is a good idea to wax all of the wooden parts (prior to assembly is best) to protect from finger marks and enhance the wood grain. If you choose our custom waxed option above we will do that for you.

This model comes flat packed and requires assembly. You can also order this wheel professionally assembled, waxed and set up by FibreHut. Worth the trip to WR11 7RE to collect as we cannot post assembled wheels.
