Availability : Out of stock
Hand Dyed
Introducing Norne Yarn's luxurious Merino/Silk/Yak blend in a DK 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 an almost metalic shine.

The song tells of the young knight Benedik, who travels to the King's court. There he falls in love with the King’s daughter Årolilja. He is not regarded as good enough for her, so by day he hunts the wild deer and by night he visits her bower in secret. A young serving boy betrays the couple to her father the King, and he has Benedik executed despite Årolija's and the Queen's pleadings. After Benedik is dead, the King sends the young serving boy to fetch Årolilja to appear before him. But the boy comes back, saying that he has found her dead from sorrow. The Queen reproaches her husband, and in the end he is lamenting that he now has neither daughter nor son in law. Benedik is buried on the north side of the church, and Årolija on the south side. Up from their graves there grows two fair lilies that intertwine across the church roof. They will stand as a lasting judgement on the King.
A sweet medium-intensity pink, over-dyed with gold to make this a warm pink colour with a lot of depth.
