Scandinavian Gnome Folklore

Tales of Scandinavian gnomes emerged from a time when farms were extremely isolated, and inhabitants throughout Scandinavia had to live through dark, long winters. The Scandinavian gnomes sprang from the imaginations of people who wanted to feel less alone during these cold, dark months.

Gnomes usually have a long white or gray beard and large noses that cover the entirety of their face, and they wore typical Scandinavian colors, like brown, navy, or gray. Some of these traditional figures have bright red caps on their heads.

Small and bearded, gnomes are mischievous domestic spirits. Scandinavians believe that they’re responsible for the welfare and protection of a farmstead and its buildings.
