The Alvar shawl is part of the beautiful and unique knitting book named Sjaler Nordfra in Danish and Nordic Shawls in English.
The book has 18 gorgeous shawls designed by Karen S. Lauger, inspired by the wild Nordic nature and the stories of the creatures that live there.

Ran is one of the ocean goddesses of Norse mythology. She is ruler of waves and storms, and she catches seamen in her great net and pulls them to the bottom of the sea.
Ran is Ægir’s wife and has nine daughters, all of whom are Heimdal’s mothers.

Ran er en af havets gudinder, hersker over bølger og storme. Hun fanger sømænd med sit store net og trækker dem til havets bund.
Ran er Ægirs kone og har ni døtre, der er Heimdals mødre.
