Ashford Charka Spinning Wheel
The Ashford Charka Spinning Wheel spins fine yarns and short fibers on this compact and portable accelerated charka.
Two ratio’s, 80:1 for cotton, silk, angora or fine wool or 16:1 for medium longer fibers. Set the wheel up with the crank on either the left or right hand side. Light and smooth to turn as wheel, spindle and countershaft rotate on ball bearings.
The spindle is made from 4mm (5/32″) stainless steel and the base sits on non-slip rubber feet. The spindle can be rotated sideways for safety and transport.
The charka is pre-finished with danish oil.
