Introduction

Ose Silverhair joined the SCA in 2009, after attending Bjorn's Celidh the previous fall. While dancing was, and still is one of the activities she regularly participates in, she quickly discovered that drop spinning is her true passion. Nalbinding is her favorite way to use up all the thread she spins.

Persona

Ose Silverhair is a late 10th century Dane, residing in the river town of Ribe. You will rarely find her without a drop spindle in hand.
