6. The Whomping Willow (Harry Potter Art Yarn Advent Calendar)

Ron gasped, staring through the windshield, and Harry looked around just in time to see a branch as thick as a python smash into it. The tree they had hit was attacking them. Its trunk was bent almost double, and its gnarled boughs were pummeling every inch of the car it could reach. […] "Can you believe our luck?" said Ron miserably, bending down to pick up Scabbers. "Of all the trees we could've hit, we had to get one that hits back."

- Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling

Description: I tried to find colours to represent the typically light, brownish-greyish willow bark, and I think I did. Naturally brown bluefaced leicester wool in two shades did the trick, and I spun them into something between smooth and gnarly, with some green added, and also light green leaf ribbons and silvery grey linen fibre for texture.
Fibre Types
: bluefaced leicester wool, merino wool, linen fibre, bamboo fibre
