Fortitude - Ravenclaw (HP Yarn Club July 2017)

Sold Out

Ravenclaw corresponds roughly to the element of air; the House colours blue and bronze were chosen to represent the sky and eagle feathers respectively, both having much to do with air. 

Ravenclaw House prizes learning, wisdom, wit, and intellect in its members. Thus, many Ravenclaws tend to be academically motivated and talented students. Ravenclaws also pride themselves in being original in their ideas, and methods.

As a Ravenclaw myself, I really wanted to do the book version of the colors.  I tried and tried, but just couldn’t get it to come out right!  I finally ran out of time, and went with this stylized inspiration instead, taking a little from the movie, and inserting a bright pop of aqua in there.  

Four plies of merino ensure round, well-defined stitches in Fortitude. Go ahead and make that sweater: Merino fiber means next-to-skin softness while Fortitude's ply structure makes for a sturdy yarn that'll hold whatever you throw at it -- cables, lace, or good old knits and purls. And for those of you who like 100% wool socks, this is your yarn. Available in all of our solid, semi-solid, and variegated colorways.
