Needle and Myrtle.


The Threadings are a series of drawings which tell the history of Mistmantle. The most common way they are made is with a thread and needle, but they have also been made as paintings and drawings. In the Threadings, different plants, colors, and animals stand for different things, e.g. gold stands for the Heart, and yarrow means heroism. This is known as the Threadings Code, and learning the Threadings code is mandatory for all animals who are circle members, captains, and priests.

The Threadings are worked on by a group of animals who are apprenticed there at a young age. The most well known of these animals are Needle, Thripple and Myrtle.
