This is a delicious base mixing the best of BFL and Silk. BFL (Bluefaced Leicester) is a bred of sheep with gorgeous shiny long staple wool that still is softer then most long-wool sheep. Blended with silk it gives a fantastic lace weight yarn that would be perfect for a shawl or a lightweight summer cardigan.

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.

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

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.
