Rainer is a tonal caramel brown created for color harmony in the collection. Its original poem was scrapped as the themes no longer felt appropriate. Instead, I chose to name this for one of my lifelong favorite poets, Rainer Maria Rilke, whose quotes, poems, and letters have influenced not only generations of poets and writers, but have inspired hope, healing, and self-discovery for thousands if not millions of people in the course of the last century. 

The poem chosen to coordinate with Rainer is "Go The Limits of Your Longing", which exists in the public domain, and which I would like to share the most quoted lines here: 

"Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror.
Just keep going. No feeling is final."

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.
