SECOND - these skeins have some bright red spots - some have more, some less. The spots are more contrasty in real life than how they are showing on the photos.
Tipa - (the te reo Māori word for scallop) - is a soft shell pink, washed with lilac and apricot. This batch is a bit darker than usual!
These skeins are all from the same lot - due to the number of dye processes, they can all look quite different! For most even results, please alternate skeins :)
Port DK is smooth and plump – a high-twist four ply construction. It’s great for garments and accessories, and showcasing cables! Port DK gets extra soft and squashy after it has had a bath. DHY recommends swatching, and alternating skeins when knitting a larger item. (Colour may vary from skein to skein, even in the same batch.)
Fibre content: 100% superwash merino

Wash carefully by hand in cold water with a few drops of clear unscented dishwashing liquid (if needed). Dry flat in shade.
I try hard to take photos that accurately represent the colour of the yarn, but please note that screens all show colour a little differently. If you have questions about colours, please ask, and I will do my best to describe them for you!
