Spindle tree (Euonymus europaeus), Tisbury
Four thousands of years before the invention of the spinning wheel all the thread used for woollen cloth was spun by women twirling a stick called a spindle between their fingers. The spindle tree got its name because its thin stems came to be used for this purpose.
