This sail is specifically designed to enhance Skíðblaðnir, the best of ships. It is  

fashioned in bold stripes of red/white or blue/white, colors that were popular during the Viking Age. Nordic looms were not generally sized to produce cloth wide enough for a sail, so long strips were woven and then these strips were sewn together to make a piece of fabric wide enough for a sail.


A weathervane proudly adorns the mast of this piece. Weathervanes of the period were considered symbols of extremely high status and were almost always made of copper gilded in gold. Our weathervane is hand-gilded in 23-karat gold leaf. Possibly reserved for nobles, ship weathervanes may have served as guideons during attacks to denote the Jarl’s ship in the formation.


When installed on the ship, the height of the entire display (ship + sail) is 16 inches.



To celebrate the studios’ ninth anniversary, customers who purchase Skíðblaðnir and/or its bold new sail by March 8 at 11:59 p.m. EST will also get a double entry for that order in the March 9, 2024 drawing for a chance to win Loyalty Loot.
