Nostepende or nostepinne is a tool used by fiber artists to wind yarn into a center pull ball, allowing the knitter to remove the working yarn from the center rather than the outside.  By winding your yarn onto the nostepende, it allows you to control the tension and visually inspect the yarn for possible defects or knots as you’re winding.

Found in Belize.  The heartwood color can range from a deep brownish - purple to a light brown.  Most common is a brownish - mauve color.
