This article is about the the Valier. For the wife of Lindo, see Vairë (Elf).

Vairë (Quenya; IPA: [ˈvaɪre] or [ˈwaɪre] - "Weaver") is an Ainu and Vala who was responsible for the weaving of the story of Arda.[1]


Vairë is counted among the Valier, the Queens of the Valar; though not as great in power or prestige as some. Her "storied webs" cover the Halls of Mandos, where she apparently lived.[1]

With the passage of time and its many ages, her woven tapestries are expanding and will clothe all of the walls of the Halls of the Dead.[1]

After the death of Finwë, Míriel returned to life and dwelt thereafter in the house of Vairë. She was given the task to record the deeds of the House of Finwë.[2]


In Quenya, Vairë means "Weaver", and was derived from the Primitive Quendian weirē, which derives from the root wey ("weave, wind"). Her Ñoldorin name is Gwîr, from gwi ("net, web").[3]
