Temari . . .

"Temari "
"Handmade thread-wrapped and embroidered spheres
  originating in China and later brought to Japan.
Temari are symbols of deep friendship and loyalty,
  Imbued with the spirit of the careful hand of the maker, 
they are wonderful as a source of inspiration 
or an object for meditation & contemplation"

I have never heard of these before, I wonder how they make them so perfectly round?

I hadn't either Valerie, they are wonderful aren't they. I have developed a bit of a collection of "round" things and these would fit the bill perfectly lol. No idea how they do it though x
