Every year I like to make drop spindle ornaments. This year’s ornament has a whorl made from Amendoim which was featured in my Whorl Wood Wednesday series (#32 Facebook page). It is harvested hardwood that is scattered throughout southern South America. The ornament is about 1 ¼” in diameter and about 3 ½” long. Spinners like them as part of their Christmas decorations, to hang from their spinning wheels and some hang them from their rear view mirrors. Some have been known to spin some fiber on them too!
