Our Viking Wolf Hair Pin features a modern take on a traditional Viking wolf design, cast in base metal and pewter with a rhodium silver wash for shine. The body of the pin measures 2.75 inches across by 1.5 inches tall. It comes complete with a cross stick.
The mischievous wolf (madadh-allaidh in Gaelic) was once found across the Scottish Highlands, followed by several centuries of coordinated hunting by fearful locals. To the Norse, wolves were both noble, valorous creatures (such as Odin’s companions Geri and Freki) and agents of chaos (such as Fenrir, Skoll and Hati). In Scottish folklore the gullible wolf is often paired with the cunning fox. Despite the wolf’s best intentions, he always falls for the fox’s devious tricks.
The myth of the Wulver began in the areas around the Shetland Islands, then spread throughout Scotland. Essentially a man-wolf covered in brown hair, the Wulver represented a wolf evolving to be more like a human. Unlike most werewolves in European lore, the Wulver is a friendly creature, often leaving fish for poor families or helping lost travellers find their way home.
