Spun cotton ornaments originated in Germany in the 19th century and were used to decorate goose feather trees. They were made by creative artisans in a cottage industry. Today antique spun cotton ornaments are highly collectible. Although little information remains regarding how these ornaments were made, through years of research, trial and error, I've developed a method very near the original methods. A figure that measures 2-3" often takes several hours to complete. When you purchase from the Spun Cotton Ornament Co., you are receiving a piece of history.
