212 meters per 100 grams

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.

Gullinbuste is a boar with golden bristles. The dwarf brothers Brokk and Sindre forged him as a gift to Freyr as part of a bet with Loki. Gullinbuste pulls Freyr's chariot, and his golden bristles glow in the dark.

"[...]to Freyr he gave the boar, saying that it could run through air and water better than any horse, and it could never become so dark with night or gloom of the Murky Regions that there should not be sufficient light where he went, such was the glow from its mane and bristles."

Skáldskaparmál

The colour is a deep golden yellow, inspired by the colour of gold.
