I always wondered why it was called 'Spindle'. Thanks for finally answering that question, Jo.

The spindle was used to make spindles for spinning wool and bobbins for lace-making which were of importance to everyday lives in ancient times. The hard wood can be whittled into a very sharp point and was also useful for sharp pegs and skewers.
