Norse - The magic rope restraining the wolf Fenris. When he broke free of chains on two occasions, the gods had a special rope made by the dwarfs which could not be broken even though it was made from such insubstantial materials as the footfall of a cat, the beard of a woman and the voice of a fish. Others include the miaow of a cat, the sinews of a bear, the spittle of a bird and the root of a mountain. In some references, identified as Gleipnir.
