Introducing Norne Yarn's luxurious BFL/Silk/Cashmere blend in a 4Ply/fingering weight yarn with a good twist and a smooth finish, the lustre is almost magical, creating a lovely stitch definition perfect for your next favourite project. This fibre blend beautifully compliments Norne Yarn's colour palette inspired by Norse Mythology, combining the deepest of hues with a lush softness and shine.

Many birds of the crow-family were considered birds of omen. Ravens, crows and magpies were considered what was called «Feigdfugl». To be feig means that that person is going to die. In Norse beliefs, these birds are linked to Odin and they can foretell many things, both good or bad. People who could speak the language of birds could learn many useful things.
It is predominantly with the introduction of Christianity they get there their bad reputation. After that they are considered definitively evil, in league with the devil himself, the companion of witches and the poultry of those who dwell underneath the hills (a group of creatures in folk-tales that have a lot in common with the Fairy-folk).

"In Frode's hall the fearful word, The death-foreboding sound was heard:
The cry of fey denouncing doom, Was heard at night in Frode's home.
And when brave Frode came, he found Swithiod's dark chief, Fjolne, drowned.
In Frode's mansion drowned was he, Drowned in a waveless, windless sea."
Ynglingasaga

A dark, cold grey, like the feathers of a crow.
