Mistarille is another word for Mithril, the mythical metal in Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. It is described as feathery light, with a silver sheen, and stronger than any other metal.

The grey silk in this this cowl and cuffs is silvery, very light and stronger than any other fiber. The stitch pattern is what I would imagine a chain-mail made by elven smiths would look like.

Both the cowl and the cuffs are worked top down, then a lace edge is worked sideways.

To match, there is also Mistarille hat.
