2021 Slick Redux - Starboard

Regular price $35.00

Tax included.

I've been mucking about with this colour, Slick, that I first made in 2015. This is the second batch...

Batch two is still very dark, like a very dark charcoal nearing black, but the undertones are much more obvious. I can see pink, purple, red, blue, green and yellow. It’s more like a blackened rainbow sort of effect.

There are no light patches - any in photos is the light reflecting off the silk fibres.

The third picture is very over exposed so you can see a bit more of the underlying tones. And just for fun, there's a pic of before it got its black overcoat.

(This is a very saturated colourway. I have washed it and the rinse water is clear. If you are planning to knit this with a light colour, I would recommend knitting a small test swatch with all the colours you're using, and wash and block in the usual way. Cold water and a couple of drops of dishwashing liquid is a good bet!)


Shiny and silky, starboard is a single ply yarn, perfect for luxurious accessories. (Starboard may look a little kinky in the skein, rest assured it lies flat and smooth when knitted up!)
