The three Moirae , part of A Golden Thread, John Strudwick , 1885.

In Greek mythology, Clotho (Κλωθώ), the Greek word for spinner, was the youngest of the Moirae. Her position was first of Three Fates, as it was Clotho who spun the threads of life with her distaff. It was also believed that she was the daughter of Night, to indicate the darkness and obscurity of human destiny. Her Roman equivalent was Nona.
