Ellenore, a musty cemetery gray with desperate bits of blood red, iris, and fuchsia inspired by a romantic ballad, Lenore (or in some translations, Ellenore) written by Gottfried August Bürger in 1773.

This so-goth-it-burns spectral romance details one sleepless night in which an undead figure resembling Lenore’s fiancé, William, arrives on horseback for his beloved Lenore. They ride through a lightning storm during which William utters “die Todten reiten schnell,” a line Bram Stoker borrowed in his hit single, Dracula. They keep careening towards what Lenore believes is their marriage bed, only to end up in a cemetery where she faces supernatural and horrifying circumstances.

Base: Zilpha (Worsted) 100% Superwash Merino. 218 yd/100g per skein.

Price listed is per one (1) skein of yarn.

All indie-dyed yarn works up differently depending on gauge, project size, and needle/hook size. Swatches are shown in sock base, from a previous dye batch, to give an average idea of the colorway.
