Sea Violet is a variegated colorway featuring aqua, sapphire, and lavender tones lightly moving into each other, and is inspired by H.D.'s poem, "Sea Violet" from her collection, Sea Garden. 

Hilda Doolittle, who published under the pseudonym H.D., was a contemporary of writers like William Carlos Williams, and a leading figure in the Imagist movement. Like Williams' work, this new poetic movement sought to emphasize crisp, pointed imagery grounded in real tangible objects over romanticism's tendency to favor language of abstract ideas and feelings. 

Sea Violet 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.
