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.

One popular destinations for Vikings to sail to on their longships during raiding season was Ireland. Ireland had many religious houses that were rich in gold and poorly defended. There are many examples of brooches and other jewellery found in graves excavated in Norway that had been made in the workshops of Irish monasteries and used there to adorn religious book or other reliquaries. The Vikings changed these beautiful pieces into jewellery to adorn themselves with.
A pale gold colourway inspired by beautiful gold jewellery seen in museums.
