- "Very bright was that sword when it was made whole again; the light of the sun shone redly in it, and the light of the moon shone cold, and its edge was hard and keen. And Aragorn gave it a new name and called it Andúril, Flame of the West."
- --J.R.R. Tolkien
This rather amazing yarn was inspired by Anduril, Aragorn's sword that was reforged in The Lord of the Rings. I dyed the yarn gold, silver, and copper in approximately even amounts.
I chose a slightly heavier lace-weight yarn for this. It is made of soft merino, silk, and sparkly stellina. The sparkle is definitely there but fairly subtle. This is not a superwash yarn, but honestly, any open lacework project would need to be washed by hand anyway, right?
