All Hail the Wale!!!
Meet the Pinwale Pin Whale. The Corduroy Appreciation Club’s main public symbol is the whale. The whale is a homonym of wale. Wale, or wales, is the raised portion of Corduroy fabric—its most distinctive trait and what makes Corduroy, Corduroy. Whales also possess attributes the CAC and its membership wish to exude: strength, endurance, intelligence, sociability, and mystery. The Whale should always be facing left.

This piece is approximately 5 inches (12.5 cm) high and 5.5 inches (14 cm) in diameter; the whale is 1.5 inches (4 cm) tall. Plumply stuffed with fiberfill, Pinwale Pin Whale is ready to meet all your pin organizing needs.
Because he is, in fact, a wild aquatic animal, Pin Wale Pinwhale is not intended for small children, especially those under the age of three.
