The good fairies of the gypsies, their name comes form the Romany word for spindle, as they are connected with spinning (a particular Gypsy invocation against sterility includes the words "Fairies, spin.") They possess the power of magic, and and lead long lives. Their princess is Ana , and they must send all female members of their clan aged over 999 years, to the Loçolico, perhaps a parallel to the trend which British Fairies must pay to hell every seven years.
