Introducing Norne Yarn's luxurious Merino/Silk/Yak blend in a 4Ply 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 Vikings went far and wide in their mighty longboats. From the late 8th century, Vikings started raiding the British Isles. After some time they settled several places, establishing towns and ruling dynasties. The Lords of the Isles started as Viking chieftains ruling the isles on the west coast of Scotland and mixing with the local Gaelic rulers, forming a Norse-Gaelic dynasty. Their power was largely based on their ships, and they had a system of requiring their subjects to man and maintain ships for military service very similar to the Norwegian Leidang. They were largely independent rulers of the region, even though they at various times swore nominal fealty to the kings of Norway, Ireland and Scotland. At the height of their power, the Lords of the Isles was among the mightiest and richest lordships in the British Isles.
A bright cold emerald green, inspired by the intense green colours made possible by a very wet climate.
