Mithril was inspired by the chain mail shirt that saved Frodo's life in The Lord of the Rings. Gandalf said the value of the Elvish silver was worth more than the whole Shire. Mithril is a light silver and a beautiful neutral to use on its own or with any number of other colorways.
Please note that this is NOT a superwash yarn. That means it can felt with agitation and changes in temperature, so it should be washed by hand in cool water. On the other hand, it can be fulled.
