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.

Midsummer night is magical in the northern lands. It is so short and it hardly gets dark, even as far south as southern Norway. It is a time for being outside and enjoying the half light full of navy shades. Midsummer celebrations are still important in Scandinavia.
In Norse times, midsummer was likely was marked with one of the main Blòts of the year. Blòt was a religious ceremony. Animals, and perhaps also people, were sacrificed to the gods. They sacrificed to Odin, the god of war and wisdom, for victory, and to fertility gods like Freyr, Freya and Njord for a good year and peace. Kin and friends were important at these occasions when people came together. It is likely that offerings were also made to the ancestors and that they drank to both those that had been and to those who were yet to come.
A dark navy blue like the darkest part of the summer night.
