Bjorn started the Sable Storm and sometime (years) later we added the Torsade (which also means support cord in Old French, the twisted is New French). When we added the purple for Caitlin the Torsade has all the major heraldic colours and so works for any Baron or Baroness to hand out - Gwyneth

        The colors of the torsad are the combined primary colors of some of our first barons and baroness'.

        Caitlin had all of her colors covered except purple.

        Claryce and I created the argent fleur. One of my primary colors is white, and one of hers is blue. I believe that most of the fleurs are either a six or eight strand weave, however the first one made had I believe 12 strands and was given to Maleah.

        hope this helps,

The colors are specific...Veronique already mentioned them.  I'm not
sure I want to say what they are specific to, since it's a great
trivia question in case we're doing a quest at a Namron event (smile).

We added purple after Mistress Caitlin was killed.
