According to a legend, an invading Norse army tried to sneak into the camp of a Scottish warriors at night. In the dark one of the barefoot Norsemen stepped on a thistle. His cry of pain woke the Scots, who immediately took up their arms and drove the Nordic invaders away.
The thistle has been the national emblem of Scotland since the 15th century. It is also the symbol of the Order of the Thistle, a high chivalric order of Scotland. The national flower is deeply interwoven with Scottish culture and even lends its name to several Scottish football clubs.
This small thistle cushion has been lovingly and carefully hand crocheted with high quality, hand-dyed wool. Front and back are the same. There are only slight variations in the colour gradient due to the non-industrial, handcrafted dyeing process.
