The Borre Shawl is inspired by a dramatic style of early Norse art which is characterized by a range of geometric interlaced knot patterns and zoomorphic (single animal) motifs. This style prevailed in Scandinavia from the late 9th through to the late 10th centuries and draws its name from a group of gilt-bronze harness mounts recovered from a ship grave in Borre mound cemetery near the village of Borre, Vestfold, Norway.

This shawl has beautiful winding cables on a simple background, just like Borre artwork, and will keep you warm on the coldest of winter days, and the darkest of winter nights.

In Stock Yarns:  We will pick and ship your in-stock yarn as soon as possible, within a few business days. Please note that if your order also includes dyed-to-order yarns you will need to allow up to 1 - 2 weeks for us to dye and ship your yarn.

Working with Hand Dyed Yarn:While we strive for consistency, due to the hand dye process variations may exist between (and with some colourways within) dye lots. Therefore it is important to order sufficient yarn for your project, and if a uniform result is preferred we suggest alternating skeins. We hope that you will value and appreciate the beautiful and unique creations of the hand dye process and are always happy to assist you in working with hand dyed yarns!
