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.

Fafnir was a great wyrm. In true dragon style, he guarded a legendary gold hoard in a desolate land where no men dared to go. Fafnir was once a dwarf prince, but a long series of events involving Odin, Loki, shape shifting, murder, blood-money, kidnapping for ransom and a cursed gold ring turned him into a great dragon laying on his golden treasure. In the end he was slain by the great hero of Germanic mythology, Sigurd the Dragon Slayer. Sigurd rode boldly into the wilderness and by hiding in a deep pit, he was able to stab the wyrm in its soft underbelly and thus kill it. He loaded the dragon's cursed treasure onto his horse Grane and rode onwards to other adventures that all ended unhappily. The tale of Sigurd is a long and complex one, and the slaying of Fafnir is but a small part of it. The tales of Sigurd the Dragon Slayer come in many variations across the northern parts of Europe.

The colourway is a golden brown
