Keats is a heavily speckled variegated colorway that was created by accident, but immediately invoked lines from John Keats' "Ode to a Nightingale" which have stayed in my memory since I was a little girl: 

Away! away! for I will fly to thee,
         Not charioted by Bacchus and his pards,
But on the viewless wings of Poesy,
         Though the dull brain perplexes and retards:
Already with thee! tender is the night,
         And haply the Queen-Moon is on her throne,
                Cluster'd around by all her starry Fays;
                        But here there is no light,
         Save what from heaven is with the breezes blown
                Through verdurous glooms and winding mossy ways.
This is the full fifth stanza of the ode, and from where the collection also derives its name, "Poesy" which in this case means poetry. 
 

Ode to a Nightingale exists in the public domain. 

The Poesy Collection is available for preorder only at this time, with orders expected to ship in 2 weeks. Each colorway is dyed by hand, and as is the nature of handmade products, there may be variation even within the same batch. We will work to ensure your order has minimal variation, but we do still recommend alternating skeins to reduce significant pooling.
