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.

Out in the sea, the great serpent, Midgardsormr, lies wrapped around the world. It is one of the three children Loki had with the giantess Angrboða. Odin threw the serpent in the sea right after it was born. There it has grown so large that it surrounds all the world and bites its own tail. When the end times, Ragnarok, comes, the god Thor and the serpent will fight until they both die.

The venomous serpent swiftly up
To the boat did Thor the bold one, pull;
With his hammer the loathly hill of the hair
Of the brother of Fenrir he smote from above.
The monster roared, and the rocks resounded,
And all the earth so old was shaken;
Then sank the fish in the sea forthwith
The lay of Hymir

An almost black blue-green.
