Fiber Arts and Magic in Norse Tradition

Fiber Arts and Magic in Norse Tradition - Kari Tauring

Spindle, shuttle, and needle were more than tools of material creation.
They were used to describe the cosmos and even to manipulate the fibers of the universe. Folk stories, songs, and myths tell us much about the power of fiber arts in the lives of the Nordic people. Kari Tauring illuminates the connections of fiber arts and magic in Norse tradition through these stories, songs, and drop spinning!
