Justice - Whomping Willow (HP Yarn Club September 2017)

Sold Out

The Whomping Willow is a very valuable, very violent species of magical plant. Whomping Willows will attack anyone and anything that comes within range of its branches. A deciduous plant, its limbs function as arms and any damage to them must be treated in much the same way.

The Whomping Willow at Hogwarts was planted around the year 1971 to disguise the opening of a secret passage leading from the Hogwarts grounds to the Shrieking Shack in the village of Hogsmeade.

I love how this dangerous tree was actually used to protect Remus Lupin as he transformed into a werewolf each year, and I especially loved when Ron crashed his dad’s flying car into it!  It’s neat, to me, how even a tree can become so much a part of the amazing world of Harry Potter.  The stylized tree in this photo spoke to me, and it was fun playing with greens and blues to make the yarn look how I wanted! 

A touch of cashmere gives Justice the soft hand of a truly luxurious yarn. Nylon gives it durability -- perfect for sumptuous socks or a little something soft and decadent to go around your neck but hardy enough to become a daily-wear sweater. All this in a surprisingly affordable skein with great yardage.
