Squonk is a mythical creature reputed to live in the Hemlock forest of northern Pennsylvania, and is a creature that is so incredibly ugly that it spends its time weeping because of how ugly it is.
Squonk is most similar to a pig, but with skin that doesn't fit. It is covered in warts and is cursed with self-awareness to the point of misery. Apparently, hunters who have tried catching squonks found that the creature is capable of completely dissolving into a pool of tears and bubbles when cornered.
Squonk, the yarn, is a light pink and light brown, with speckles of light blue reminiscent of the Squonk's tears.
