Verdande (pronounced VAHR-ah-nay) is one of the Norse Fates. She is the Fate associated with the present while her older sister, Urd, is associated with the past and her younger sister, Skuld, is associated with possible futures. More often in Norse mythology they are associated with what was, what is and what could come to be. Most current mythologists agree that Urd means Fate (or those actions that have already taken place); Verdandi means Becoming (or those actions in the process of taking place); and Skuld means Necessity (or those necessary actions that drive the whole process).

Verdande is the worsted weight version of Sunna (fingering), Birte (dk), and Nona (which has a higher luxury fiber content). It is a beautiful 4-ply yarn which works well in a multitude of projects ~ lace, cables, stockinette, colorwork.

Mary is named for Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1797), an English writer, philosopher, and advocate of women's rights. During her brief career, she wrote novels, treatises, a travel narrative, a history of the French Revolution, a conduct book, and a children's book. Wollstonecraft is best known for A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), in which she argues that women are not naturally inferior to men, but appear to be only because they lack education. She suggests that both men and women should be treated as rational beings and imagines a social order founded on reason. (wikipedia)
