Published in 1907 by Algernon Blackwood, "The Willows" is a perfectly dreadful account of how terrifying the natural world can be. A canoe trip down the Danube River turns sinister as the environment - and especially the willow trees - develops an ominous mood. But the narrator never precisely reveals what exactly the cause of the dread is, leaving the reader guessing and checking over their shoulder. This subtly variegated colorway mimics a horrifying slow trip through dark woods and murky waters, and works up stunningly in crochet or knit projects or paired with a more subtle tonal.

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 only. Swatch does not perfectly depict the batch available for purchase and may vary in texture from the yarn base available.
