A soft and luxurious DK weight yarn. This yarn is almost the same fibre mix as the Singles and the same light grey when undyed so all colours look at bit different on these two. Perfect for shawls and soft garments with a lot of drape.

The giant wolf Fenrir is a son of the trickster god Loki and the giantess Angrboða. The gods went to great troubles to bind Fenrir on a lonely islet. Part of the reason for this, is the role that is foretold for Fenrir in Ragnarok, the ending of the world. When Ragnarok comes, the great wolf will break his bonds and kill Odin. Odin's son Vidar will then slay the wolf in order to revenge his father

Brothers shall fight

and fell each other,

And sister` sons

shall kinship stain;

Hard is it on earth,

with mighty whoredom

Axe-time, sword-time,

shields are sundered,

Wind-time, wolf-time,

ere the world falls;

Nor ever shall men

each other spare.

Völuspá

The colour is inspired by a wolf's fur. Grey with overtones of brown and yellow.
