The new Traveller 3 design is reminiscent of the original Traveller first made back in 1977. With some great new improvements for 2023, it is sure to be very popular.

Ashford Traveller 3 specifications:

  • A beautiful, classic upright castle wheel.
  • Aesthetically designed centralised flyer location suitable for both left- and right-hand spinners.
  • Four speed single drive flyer with stretchy polycord drive band eliminates any flyer vibration and makes changing ratios a breeze.
  • Ratios 5, 7, 9 and 14:1
  • Sliding hook flyer with three 90mm large capacity bobbins as standard. 
  • Wooden handle threading hook with longer hook for easier threading.
  • Convenient storage for threading hook.
  • Scotch tension for simple, smooth accurate tension adjustment.
  • Built-in lazy kate (that will also accommodate Jumbo bobbins).
  • The 46cm (18”) drive wheel is now heavier resulting in 20% more momentum which means even less effort required to treadle.
  • Stainless steel ball bearings, polyurethane hinge and con rod joints, and double treadle for comfortable, balanced, and effortless treadling.
  • Quick and easy to assemble.
  • Compact footprint.

Available in a Natural or Lacquered finish.

    Great double brake wheel

    Posted by Allen on 2022 May 3rd

    Easy to assemble even though the instructions are confusing in part. I have an old Wee Peggy which I was looking to replace. This wheel is very smooth and easy to adjust. I really like this wheel

    It's a Wonderful Wheel that I Love (But It's Not Perfect)

    Posted by Amelia on 2020 Sep 8th

    I love my Ashford spinning wheel. It spins like a charm and is a solid piece that seems like it'll last a long time. I am so glad that I decided to go ahead with this purchase. Being able to spin again on a well-working wheel makes me so happy. That being said, this is a four-star and not a five-star review because some of the fine details on the woodwork weren't great. Structurally it is perfectly sound, but some of the parts have some tear-out at the edges, the curves of the wheel and some other tricky parts weren't sanded very well, there are some minor burn marks where the wood got too hot, and a couple other things. These are all aesthetic issues, not functional or structural, so they don't affect my spinning at all. Still, for the price I was hoping that the craftsmanship would be better. I still love my wheel and am glad that I bought it, but it's not perfect. Also, you need to do a lot of assembling to get the wheel going, which includes hammering pieces in. The assembly instructions weren't always clear (Ashford, please hire a copy editor for that booklet), and I'm not a mechanically minded person, so that process was frustrating for me. Again, I still love my wheel and am glad that I have it. Just the process wasn't perfect. Still, I would recommend this wheel. It spins like a charm, which is the most important thing.

    Was not disappointed

    Posted by Shelby on 2019 Dec 28th

    I have been looking to purchase a spinning wheel for a long time now, and I was hesitant to purchase one online because it is quite the investment and had no reviews. But I finally bit the bullet and was not disappointed. You do have to assemble the wheel yourself and some light tools are required, however, the directions were relatively simple to follow with lots of descriptive images. Quality exceeded my expectations. Very satisfied.
