Basilisk is a classic silk mohair yarn with 420 m/50 g. It can be used on its own to create very light and airy garments, but is more commonly held together with another yarn to create a warm and very soft fabric with a beautiful halo.

All yarns from Sägen are hand dyed by Lotta H Löthgren, using GOTS-certified dyes. The colourways are named after creatures, entities, details or ideas from folklore and old stories, and Sägen is the Swedish word for a certain kind of folk story. My aim is to create a palette of colours that are just as beautiful on their own as they are to combine, and that knitters and makers can return to over the years.
