EOWYN'S MANTLE on Squoosh DK

Regular price $28.00

"...Lady Eowyn wore a great blue mantle of the colour of deep summer-night, and it was set with silver stars about hem and throat."
                     ---The Return of the King by Tolkien

I dyed Eowyn's Mantle using my Ikat method. First I dyed the majority of the skein a soft tonal navy color, and then I added thin stripes of alternating silver and gold. The gold was artistic license on my part, but I thought it was a reasonable addition to the description of the cloak given to Eowyn by Faramir.


If you knit or crochet with it, you'll get little dots or stars of gold and silver in the field of dark blue. If you weave with it, you'll get short stripes of gold and silver.

This particular batch came out a little more heathered than usual.
