This instantly iconic Lonely Mountain pattern is woven in a three colour hybrid weave, the design is inspired by ancient maps and illustrations to create a storybook feel.
The Lonely Mountain, or Erebor, the Dwarven kingdom which was home of the exiled members of King Durin’s folk, led by the King Under the Mountain, Thrór, until the attack and occupation by the dragon Smaug. This towering mountain is quest’s end for Thorin Oakenshield and company, along with Bilbo Baggins, in their efforts to reclaim the kingdom for their people in The HobbitTM.
The runes read “Five feet high the door and three may walk abreast Th. Th.” echoing the description of the Black Door on Thrór’s map. Th. Th. refers to Thrór and Thrain, Thorin’s father and grandfather, who drew the map which leads the company to Smaug’s lair. Nearby Smaug circles the mountain containing his hoard, while the banners proclaim the name of the mountain in flowing script.
Woven with BCI organic cotton and GRS Certified recycled cotton using a hybrid weave technique, this shawl is soft and breathable.
Hybrid weave is a special technique that allows us to use multiple colours to highlight different areas of the pattern for a unique look.
