The Doe

The Doe is a variegated colorway featuring navy blues, deep bluish purples, surprises of vibrant pink, and mixes of bright orange throughout. This colorway was inspired by my favorite contemporary poet, CK Williams, and the opening poem from his book, "The Singing". 

The Doe is a quiet, stick-with-you poem that's fat with powerful images. To capture the beauty of this poem, I drew on the specific images of shadows and late-light through a forest, as well as that red of light passing through the thin flesh of a doe's ear. 

The Doe is not in the public domain, and while this collection may reference and/or quote from the poem in an academic and/or inspirational matter, we acknowledge no rights to reproduce, sell, or copy this talented poet's work. 

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. 

The Doe is available on five bases and one sock set as listed below.
