Surcease of Sorrow-Edgar Allan Poe Set-Ready to Ship

Potion Yarns


Regular price $55.00

"Vainly had I sought to borrow, from my books, surcease of sorrow..."

This incredible line from Edgar Allan Poe's most famous poem, The Raven, was the inspiration for this beautiful and enchanting collaboration with two other fabulously talented makers. A lifelong Poe fan, I find his works and the mystery and intrigue surrounding them to be irresistible and have often used his writings and life as inspiration for various artworks, so creating a Poe themed yarn was the perfect project for me. To really highlight the beauty of this exclusive yarn, I teamed up with two incredible makers, Wanda Zaharfy of Twisted Yarn and Fiber and Wanda Calamia of Silly Sheep Designs to bring you this tantalizingly spooky set! There are only a limited number of these incredible sets so be sure to grab yours right away!

For this colorway, I chose the vibrant contrast of neon acid green fading into deep emerald and teal against a neutral grayish-brown and deep, inky black and handpainted the colors in short color runs to resist striping and create a random flow of colors across your project. Choose between the Foxy Fingering base and the Dryad Fingering.For information on base yarn choices, click here. This colorway is an exclusive fall 2017 offering and will be only available in the shop through November 30, 2017 or until sold out. It may show up in future sets or clubs...but no guarantee so this may be your only chance to snag one!

In this set, you'll receive one hand-dyed skein in the colorway Surcease of Sorrow, one medium-sized project bag (see measurements below) with beaded skull zipper pull, and one handcrafted polymer clay stitch marker at a discounted price! Additional dyed to order skeins can be purchased by clicking here.

The project bag is made by Twisted Yarn and Fiber and measures 9" tall x 13" wide x 4" deep. It is designed to hold 2-3 100g. skeins of yarn plus your project and is sewn using quality cotton fabric and a fluffy fleece interfacing to give it structure. It includes a wrist strap and a removeable beaded skull zipper pull. Lined with a contrasting fabric inside, this bag is perfect for holding your next spooky project!

The stitch marker from Silly Sheep Designs was created especially for this collaboration! An incredibly detailed anatomical heart, the split ring marker was dipped in black glitter to add extra pizzazz to this beautiful little organ. It fits up to a size 10.5 needle.

 I use professional quality acid dyes to ensure vivid colors that will last. No two skeins are identical: if you need more than one skein for your project, be sure to alternate rows to ensure variegation. Please note that each skein is a unique work of art and may not exactly match the photos, but will be very close. I may reskein your yarn before shipping to avoid tangles if necessary.
