Durin's Bane is a dramatic colorway inspired by the Balrog in Moria from The Lord of the Rings. Tolkien describes the Balrog as a creature of shadow and fire, and I have tried to represent that.
The colors are a combination of rich red for the fire and purple for the shadows and several shades where the two intersect.
I dyed it on Quick and Cozy Bulky which is a 3-ply yarn made of 100% superwash merino. It has great stitch definition and wonderful squishiness. It's perfect for when you want something that works up quickly without sacrificing softness. I think the combination of the colorway and this fun yarn base will be fabulous together.

MY GIFT TO YOU
As a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
